Grow Year Round

August 27, 2021

Summer is nearly over but that doesn’t mean that your gardening season has to come to an end. Even in the colder months, you can extend the growing season by creating a cold frame for your garden.

If you don’t have some veggies growing already, you can plant seedlings in late summer or early fall.  These are a few veggies that do well: leafy greens like spinach, collards, lettuce, arugula, and kale, root vegetables like radishes, carrots, and turnips, or bulbs like onions, chives, leeks, shallots, and garlic.

You can buy a cold frame to use or you can build one yourself with these DIY instructions from Treehugger. Either way grab some Carhartt overalls or work shirt and get your hands dirty.  When you harvest your own home grown veggies in the colder months, you’ll be glad you did.
