What crops harvest in the fall?
Leaf lettuce, spinach, mustard, Oriental greens, arugula, cress, sorrel, and kale make good fall crops.
Beets, carrots, radishes, and turnips are also good fall harvest crops.
All of these crops can be direct sown in the garden in mid to late summer.

Some vegetables will tolerate some frost and keep growing even when temperatures are in the low forties.
Others cannot tolerate frost and stop growing in cool weather.
Bush snap beans mature in 45 to 65 days, but even a light frost (temperatures between 30 and 32 degrees) will kill the plants.
Kale takes just as long to mature, but the plants continue to grow when temperatures are cool, and can survive cold down to about 20 degrees Farenheit.
