While we may not want to admit it, fall is just around the corner. Avid gardeners and beekeepers know that this is the time to prepare for fall and winter harvests. There are many wonderful fall crops that can be seeded now and harvested well into the colder months. Greens like spinach, lettuce, arugula, mustard and Asian greens, daikon radish, and carrots will all thrive during late summer and into fall. Be sure to get these crops established before the Persephone period, when day length is under 10 hours. In other words, these plants should be established before November 1 in Carroll County; after this date plants will stop growing until day length begins to increase, around February. Read full story.
