Choose cool crops your family likes. Some fall veggies to consider, courtesy of Bonnie Plants, include:
—Lacinato kale — A cold-hardy vegetable, kale leaves get sweet tasting after frost. Health experts tout the benefits of eating kale.
—Early dividend broccoli — Many greens love fall weather, and broccoli is no exception. Plant stalks 18 inches apart to harvest a crop that’s healthy to eat and easy to steam.
—Cabbage — Hybrid cabbage grows large, round blue-green heads you can use in salads, stews and soups — or steam alone.
—Romaine lettuce — Space transplants 18 inches apart for nutrition-rich lettuce you can use on salads, sandwiches and wraps.
Water wisely. Plants need an inch of moisture weekly — from Mother Nature or you.
