Hello again knowledgable prople of rec.gardens.edible. My first
attempt at gardenning was OK. I got about
3-4 cucumbers a week from 6 plants,
enough chilli peppers from 5 plants,
enough spring onions that I could use,
half the tomatoes I needed from 6 plants didn't get good yields,
about a third of what I need from my two basil plants,
more mint than I needed,
6 good ears of corn and 6 bad ears of corn from 6 stalks,
about a pound of string beams from 6 vines,
1 good watermelon from 4 plants.
Not good, but not too bad for a first timer I guess. I appreciate all
the help and advices I received here in rec.gardens.edible.
Fall is here in Northern VA near DC. What should I be planting veggie
wise at this time of year?
Thank you kindly,
You are looking for "cool season" crops; in addition to what Om said,
include: cold hardy lettuces, endive, arugula, claytonia, mache.
For my zone, this would all have had to be started back in mid-late
August to have anything worthwhile now to Dec.
If you have carrots already planted, mulch 'em and they are supposed
to not freeze (stay pull-able) and get tastier as the cold turns their
starches to sugar..

Thank you to all that responded. I've been busy so didn't get around
to the Fall planting yet. Maybe this weekend. Hope it isn't too
late. I think I'll put downs some lettuce and cabbage. Is it too
late to plant carrots? If not, I'll plant them too.
This Summer was my first try and this Fall will also be a first try at
Fall planting. Next year I'll be planting a little more than this
Thank you all again for helping.
