Autumn is prime-time for growing fresh food—including garlic!
Fall is, in many ways, the best time to plant vegetables. The soil is warmer than in spring, so plants grow more quickly. The early days of autumn tend to be balmy, with occasional spells of rain—ideal conditions for young plants to get established. Peak seasons for bugs and weeds have passed. And best of all, autumn gardening lets you enjoy the simple pleasure of eating homegrown food through Thanksgiving.
