Fall Vegetable Gardens
It may seem kind of crazy, since it isn’t even August yet (almost!), but it is time to start thinking about our fall vegetable garden in the Demo Garden. We had some kids from a day camp plant another round of beans last week, and then one of the Master Gardeners filled in some of the holes on Tuesday.
Since we harvested the carrots and beets in the Family of 4 Garden (and the onions a few weeks back), we have some space there for fall veggies. We’ll also see how the tomatoes and peppers do – we may pull them out some time in September to plant another lettuce or spinach crop.
The Salad Garden is fairly open for planting as well. We have some cucumbers, arugula, and bull’s blood beets planted right now. There’s also a very young (2 weeks old) planting of lettuce and arugula. There’s lots of space for planting fall salad vegetables…we just have to decide what we’re going to plant!
Here are some things that could be planted for fall vegetables in Kansas:
Vegetables to Plant in Early August
- Bok Choy
- Broccoli (transplants)
- Cauliflower (transplants)
- Fall Radishes (Such as daikon, etc.)
- Swiss Chard
Vegetables to Plant from Late August to Mid-September
- Bok Choy
- Mesclun mixes and other salad greens
- Spring Radishes
