This Fall Vegetable Garden Plan Ensures a Delicious Autumn Bounty

As temperatures cool, you can still grow plenty of veggies in a raised bed.

Tender lettuce, spinach, and peas aren't limited to spring. Enjoy these and other cool-season crops by following this fall bounty garden plan for a four-foot-square raised bed. They'll grow quickly while the soil is still warm, but won't mind when temperatures drop in autumn. This plan is designed to follow the summer vegetable garden plan, so it includes previously planted tomatoes, peppers, and green beans that would be reaching maturity as your fall-planted crops would start growing. If you're just starting with this fall vegetable plan, leave the spaces for the warm-season crops empty or fill them with more lettuce or spinach. Site this garden in full sun for the best harvests.
