(MCT)—The fall vegetable garden is some of the best, easiest and healthiest gardening you can do because:
—Temperatures are comfortable.
—Pests are few.
—Weeds are minimal.
—Rains are frequent.
—Harvests are quicker.
Cool crops start out strong, growing quickly, and then slow their growth as days become shorter and cooler, according to the gardening experts at Bonnie Plants, which sells vegetable transplants at garden centers nationwide.
You also need to work less to protect your garden from pests, as both insects and animal populations will taper off in fall.
Now is the time to start that fall vegetable garden, giving you fresh produce from your yard to table.
