This year we planted a fall crop of lettuce and spinach. We're hoping it makes it through these frosty October nights. You can start cold crops (peas, spinach, kale, lettuce, radishes, cabbages) in August and you will be able to harvest in September & October. You can also plant these same crops in early spring. Sometimes as early as March in the Northwest. This gives you a head start on gardening and you'll be enjoying some veggies by the end of April.
