Some Survival Gardening Suggestions for Fall Planting

It may be the heat of summer as I post this, but it’s time to get ready for fall survival gardening. There are a number of vegetables you can grow before it gets too cold.

How about starting broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower? Or you could directly plant green beans, carrots, salad greens, beets, and radish seeds for a healthy and colorful fall harvest.

Here are a few suggestions in alphabetical order.

* Beans
* Beets
* Broccoli
* Cabbage
* Carrots
* Cauliflower
* Garlic
* Kale
* Lettuce
* Radishes
* Shallots
* Swiss Chard

You can also grow flowers, fall planted bulbs and Perennials.

You’ll notice I didn’t mention specific varieties above. That’s because you may have your favorites, or certain varieties may do better where you live. Check with your local university extension service for specific varieties best for your area.

When it comes to survival gardening, take every opportunity you can to grow the food you love and will eat. You’ll find seeds and gardening supplies featured on the Survival Gardening page in the Prep Mart.
