By the time Summer comes to an end and your Spring garden is finishing up, you’re likely wondering if you should plant a Fall garden. The answer is YES!
It makes sense why you don’t want to plant a fall garden. Summer is barely ending, and not quick enough if you have long hot summers like I do! You’re tired, and the thought of tending to another garden right after you made it through the summer months is probably overwhelming!
But that’s why I encourage you to plant a fall garden!
When I Don’t Plant a Fall Garden
Fall is a wonderful time of the year! The long hot summer is finally ending and cool mornings have finally arrived, and I couldn’t be happier!
When I walk outside and see my empty garden beds from Spring, some still filled with dead plants that I need to clean out… all I wish is that I had plants sprouting for a Fall harvest.
Now that it is cooler I want to spend all my time outdoors and the thought of pulling weeds even sounds appealing (crazy I know) but with the weather permitting, Fall is a far nicer time than the majority of the months I spend sweating in the Summer tending to the Spring garden.
So the times when I don’t have a Fall garden, I am always wishing I did!
Be Inspired to Plant a Fall Garden
So my reason to you on why you need to plant a fall garden is because there is no better time than Fall! Also, not all areas and planting zones are suited for a Fall garden, so if you live in a zone that can accommodate a Fall garden, definitely do it!
You have an advantage over other gardeners who probably dream of having a Fall garden, but can’t, so take advantage of that blessing in disguise.
One more thing to ponder while you plan out your list of what to plant for Fall, is that so many vegetables that you weren’t able to grow in Spring, are now ready to be planted! Such as: broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, and kale.
Happy Fall gardening my friends, planting a Fall garden is worth every moment!
