This summer has been very hot and dry, so Hermes Landscaping knows that going outside in this Kansas City heat to plant may be the last thing on your agenda. However, now is the time to start preparation for a fall vegetable garden. That’s right, you’ll want to get started on those spinach, lettuce, and other fall garden crops. Many people don’t realize that vegetables harvested in the cool of the year more than likely taste better and are easier to grow than spring gardens.
If you’ve never planted a fall vegetable garden before, go ahead and try it this year. Don’t overlook the season just because you don’t consider yourself a vegetable gardener. It is those crisp and cool nights that create perfect growing conditions. In addition to that, many fall crops can be left in the ground for quite some time, even well into winter. Just pick them as needed.
What vegetables are you looking forward to planting this summer?
