Summer and early fall can be an ideal time to sow seeds, whether it be vegetables, lawns, or cover crops. Extend your vegetable garden longer into the season and enjoy multiple harvests into the fall.
Sowing Cool-season Vegetables in Mid-to-late Summer
Cool-season vegetables can be planted in the earliest spring for summer harvest but can also be planted in summer, for fall harvest. Aim to sow your summer seeds so that plants will start to mature when the weather cools off in the fall.
Cool-season vegetables are able to withstand a light frost. In some cases, such as kale, carrots & Brussel sprouts, the flavor improves after a frost!
Summer and autumn seed sowing is part of the greater topic of planting cool season vs. warm season vegetables in your garden.
