fall cropsSome gardeners are successful in planting a fall crop of peas, although it will depend on several factors. Peas like it cool, and planting in August/September usually means that they'll be starting out in warm weather. Select varieties that mature quickly and time your planting so that the plant will flower before a frost hits. You might provide row covers or other shading in warmer weather. As for other fall crops, you might be able to plant broccoli, kale, lettuce, Swiss chard, spinach, beets, or carrots. For other ideas for your area, you might ask a local nursery or your county's cooperative extension.
