Food Gardening Magazine Reveals The 5 Vegetables To Plant In October | New
BOSTON, October 5, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Food Gardening Network, publisher of Food Gardening magazine, published its October 2021 issue, featuring their list of five vegetables you can plant in a cold frame or prepare now for a spring harvest.
In the article and accompanying video for 5 Vegetables to Plant in October, Editor-in-Chief Amanda MacArthur sharing tips on using a cold frame to grow three crops in cool weather for an early winter harvest, plus two other vegetables you can start right now for an early spring harvest.
MacArthur writes, “There really is no ‘end of season’ for a gardener, no matter what time of year. There is still a lot to do in your kitchen garden to start spring crops.”
The five featured vegetables include:
1. Onions – Onions are hardy and can withstand cold temperatures, especially when in a cold frame. As long as they have loose soil, they will grow almost anywhere.
2. Carrots – Sow carrot seeds directly into the ground in loose soil and you will be able to eat them in about 60 days. Of course, as long as they don’t bloom, you can leave your carrots in the ground until the ground freezes.
3. Spinach – You can still get a harvest of spinach at the end of the season, but as long as it is in a cold frame, your spinach will go dormant during the winter and start growing again in February.
4. Arugula – Arugula is a great addition to any salad and is hardy enough to grow in a cold setting during the winter. Sow the seeds about an inch apart in rows six inches apart. Cover lightly with soil as arugula seeds need sunlight to germinate.
5. Garlic – Want to get a head start on next season’s harvest? Plant the garlic now. Your garlic will form strong roots over the winter and be ready to take off after the first thaw, for a quick spring harvest.
