Organic Gardening: Planting Your Fall Garden

Organic gardening is a great way to enjoy fresh produce without spending very much money. We try to grow the majority of our produce each year in our organic garden. Planting a fall, spring and summer garden allows us to enjoy fresh produce 9-10 months out of the year.

Growing just a few plants can help to cut your food bill. Plus, you have the added benefit of knowing that no chemicals were used on your food, and the added nutrition and flavor of being able to pick your food, and eat it immediately.

There are many delicious foods that you can plant in the fall!  Here are a few of my favorite!

Vegetables To Plant In A Fall Garden:

  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • carrots
  • cauliflower
  • cucumber
  • garlic
  • kale
  • lettuce
  • onions
  • parsley
  • peas
  • radishes
  • rhubarb
  • swiss chard
  • turnips

You can find instructions about how to grow many fruits, vegetables and herbs in your organic garden here.

There are many ways to garden, so almost everyone can garden. You can grow herbs indoors if you do not have any areas outside.

If you only have a small amount of room outside, or if you do not want to spend much time gardening, you can build a raised bed or container garden. These gardens are elevated above the ground. As a result, they do not get many weeds. Also, you can garden intensively in these gardens, getting a large amount of food per square foot.
I really hope that each of you are inspired to start an organic garden! Growing your own fruits and vegetables is delicious & healthy, plus helps you to save money.

    I can not believe the scope of your healthy vegatable list…I just remember how our garden (50 years ago) consisted of the basics and where nothing was planted in the fall.
