This Month’s Tips: Late Summer, Early Fall Gardening

The Chicago Botanic Garden shows you how to squeeze the most from your vegetable garden before gardening season winds down.
  1. Round two. During the first week of August, you can plant snap beans, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, carrots, mustard greens, spinach, and radishes for a fall harvest. You also can plant lettuces, mesclun mixes, and other greens.
  2. Pick. Keep vegetables picked, so plants will keep producing.
  3. Harvest. Don’t let your squash and zucchini get super-sized. They’ll be novelties but have little flavor.
