Fall is a time of comfort and bounty in the garden: winter squash ripen, roots of all sorts size up, and the last flowers fade slowly as the chill settles in. To maximize your enjoyment of this season, there is still much sowing left to do. Sow storage carrots and beets in mid-summer, along with your last flush of cucumbers, zucchinis, and green beans. Sow greens for fall eating through Labor Day. There are even plenty of crops to plant in fall for early-spring eating or for flowers next year. Keep giving your garden some love, and it will love you right back.
