Plant Now for Fall and Winter Veggies

Plant Now for Fall and Winter Veggies

Start prepping your soil for a fall garden, enjoy fresh veggies through late summer and fall. Start by removing weeds and old vegetables, turn the top of soil 4-6 inches, and add compost to your garden bed. Don't dig the bed too deeply as it will upset the beneficial microbes in the ground that aid the veggies in their attempt to pull nutrients from the soil. Once the seedlings are 4-5 inches tall, you should apply a layer of mulch to keep the ground warm, moist, and to keep the weeds down. Adding organic fertilizer will also help replenish the soil and give the soil back some of the nutrients it needs for your fall crop.
