Fall is a fantastic time to do some gardening in Kansas. The summer sun has cooled off and the flavors produced by crops are crisp and perfect for fresh consumption or preserving for those cold winter days.
Crops such as tomatoes, okra, peppers, spinach, sweet potatoes, and even eggplant will continue growing into the Fall. If you have already planted these, then all you have to do is keep them watered and keep the pests at bay.
Plants you can consider planting in the Fall are cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and of course cabbage. These grow well in cool conditions and will be ready to harvest before the snow starts to fall. As long as you make sure to plant them with at least one foot of space between plants in the row, you should have no difficulty at all.
As with any planting, follow the instructions specific to the plant. Some plants such as kale and lettuce require more water than plants such as carrots and beets. Remember: watering, fertilizing, and soil prep instructions must be followed to the letter to ensure a successful fall planting.
