The Chicago Botanic Garden shows you how to squeeze the most from your vegetable garden before gardening season winds down.
- 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.
- Pick. Keep vegetables picked, so plants will keep producing.
- Harvest. Don’t let your squash and zucchini get super-sized. They’ll be novelties but have little flavor.
