So many folks think that gardening is over when autumn comes. It's one of my favorite times...less heat and humidity...and gazillions fewer bugs!

This was a good read with lots of information.

Thanks, Melody.

I hope some folks, at least those in the 7, 8, & 9 Zones will at least try some radishes and lettuces in the up-coming season.

As for me, I just found some Swiss Chard "Bright Lights" seed that I hope to get in this weekend. And also some kale. I thought they would make a beautiful composition, and I can eat the plants if I want to.

I don't do much in the way of vegetables, but my DD does, and so I read your article with great interest. We certainly don't have to worry about the frost and snow that other zones contend with, but you had so much other information! The seed catalogs, books and links to our own DGers were great information. Well done Gloria! Interesting, and informative - and I loved the vege pics!

I love the purple carrots. I ordered the seeds and can't wait to grow them.
