It’s that time of year again. Fall gardening season is upon us!
Remember ‘fall’ gardening = Planting in August to early September and harvesting in September to usually about late October. In KC, we need to plant our ‘fall’ gardens at this time to give cool season crops a chance to do their thing before temps get too cold.
To make planning out your school garden a cinch, use our handy dandy Fall Planting Planning Sheet. This year, we recommend planting no later than September 9th.
