Fall gardening season is just about here. Fall gardens are planted with what is called Cole Crops. The cole crops grow best at monthly average temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees F. Some crops like broccoli can tolerate temperatures as low as 15 degrees F. My personal goal is to have my cole crops planted by the end of September.
One of my favorite fall crops is garlic. Garlic is a long-term endeavor with about 7 to 8 months until harvest. If you are planing garlic in a garden, your spring planting scheme needs to work with the garlic. I use concrete blocks for the boarder of my raised bed garden. Yes, the holes are pointed up and they make an excellent spot for planing garlic.
Our “Garden In A Box” is a complete raised bed garden kit. They are made from 8”x 2” cedar and come in the following sizes, 4’ X 4’, 4’ X 8’ and 4’ X 12’. These kits come with all the soil and amendments you will need to start a garden. Well, you’ll still need like… seeds and plants.
