Fall into Winter Gardens
Remove any summer crops that are starting to fade and prepare soil with mulch, mycorrhiza, compost. Re-plant with fall/winter crops or cover crops.
Plant last round of heat loving crops
(early) tomatoes with harvest dates within 50-60 day range
Summer/winter squash (same requirements)
Mid-season planting in August
Onion, Shallots, Green onions
Peas, plant 2 rounds, August and again in Sept for fall/spring harvest
Turnips, baby white turnips & regular
Late summer (end of Sept) plant cover crops for any areas where you won’t be planting any winter crops.
Some cool season vegetables should probably be protected from the hot months of Sept into Oct. But by planting these vegetables/fruits now they will benefit from the warmth of the soil and the longer days. If you wait too long, late Oct, the soil is already cooling down and the sun is leaning towards winter, the days growing shorter.
