Preparing for a fall garden

Are you planning to plant fall vegetable crops this year? August is a great time to start your fall garden. A number of vegetables can be grown in the fall here, including snap beans, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, collards, cucumbers, kale, kohlrabi, leaf lettuce, mustard, radishes, rutabagas, spinach, turnips, squash, and southern peas. Prior to planting, you will want to remove weeds and previous crops and prepare your soil.

Charles Murphy, a Durham EMGV, shows how to prepare a garden bed and plant fall crops in these videos.

For more information, including a fall vegetable planting guide, please see the following publications from NCSU Cooperative Extension:
