Looking for a fun outdoor activity this Labor Day? Now is a good time to get some vegetable seeds in the ground for a fall harvest. Right now you can plant direct seeded in the ground:
If you can find some cabbage or broccoli transplants at the nursery they can go in the ground as well. In two weeks plant another short row of lettuce and radishes to extend your harvest even longer. I would wait on planting spinach right now, still a bit too warm for that finicky crop to germinate.
Check out this video on Planting the Fall Garden for even more information and enjoy the holiday weekend!
