Fall Planting Guide

Written by: Edible Landscapes

Ever wonder why Spring can be so harsh on the Cape? People call it "the ocean effect." To sum it up, the ocean that surrounds us acts as a thermal battery, holding on to the cold of the winter, making for some harsh spring conditions. The good news is that the Fall is awesomely mild, as the ocean retains all that heat from the summer. This makes for excellent conditions for fall gardening on Cape. Plant your cool-season veggies in August and September and reap the harvest all the way up till the ground freezes solid. 

So get out there and get planting.

What to plant for the fall season? Here's a great list to get started:

  • Kale
  • Peas
  • Swiss Chard
  • Radishes
  • Lettuce
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Arugula
  • Endive
  • Turnips
  • Spinach
  • Mustard Greens
  • Beets
  • Bok Choi
  • Rutabaga
  • Cilantro
  • Dill

You can either direct-seed these into the ground, or plant starts/seedlings (if you can find them!). We'll have a bunch of trays that will be ready by mid-August. But its first-come, first-served!
