Planting A Fall Vegetable Garden

As a  young kid growing up in an outlying suburb of Los Angeles, I remember my mother planting her yearly garden in the late spring. She always planted tomatoes, squash (including pumpkins), zucchini, carrots (somehow always a bust) and generally just about anything that would sustain us through the summer. However, she never planted a fall garden. As an adult, I wonder why since that is when it’s time to plant all of my now-favorite vegetables. When I ask her, she mentions that fall was time for school and work. There simply wasn’t enough time to tend to a fall garden.

What To Plant In Your Fall Vegetable Garden

With organic gardening on an upswing, there is renewed interest and delight in gardening, especially in planting a fall vegetable garden. With the help of the infamous Old Farmer’s Almanac, I was able to find what exactly was a good bet to plant in Hidden Hills during October. Here’s what I found:

Early October:

  • Beans
  • Beets
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts (one of my favs)
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale (the super veggie)
  • Leeks
  • Parsnips
  • Some Squash
  • Some Tomatoes

Mid October:

  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Swiss Chard
  • Turnips

For those of you who find “Planting By The Moon Phase” of interest, there is another whole section devoted to you. According to the Almanac: “Oldtime farmers swear that this practice results in larger, tastier harvest.”

What is Planting By The Moon Phase? Simply put:

  • Plant flowers and vegetables that bear crops above ground during the light, or waxing, of the Moon: from the day the Moon is new to the day it is full.
  • Plant flowering bulbs and vegetables that bear crops below ground during the dark, or waning, of the Moon: from the day after it is full to the day before it is new again.

The Almanac does have a nifty online garden planner for those who are most likely not master gardeners. Even hard-core gardeners may find this useful.
