Fall Gardening!

I keep learning as I grow.  Turns out, in central NC, people can grow crops in the fall as well.  I may have been the only one here who did not know that… anyway, people plant broccoli, beets, lettuce, cabbage, kale, and collards (and lots more I don’t know about).  It isn’t always 100% -a really cold snap in the fall can kill some of the plants.  But either the garden just sits there fallow until spring, or I try something.  With everything going on right now, I might not get the longer-growing things into the ground.  But I can certainly try some more lettuce and spinach as soon as the high temps are less than 85.  Later, I could extend the growing time into hard-frost days if I cover containers with clear plastic over PVC frames, as well.
