When to Start Planning for Your Fall Garden

Posted on Jun 20 2012 - 1:49am by Mike Lieberman

Did you not get around to planting your garden this summer?

Or did everything you plant die and you feel like a failure?

Don’t worry. The beauty of gardening is that there is always a next season.

Despite summer just beginning, the time to start preparing for the next season, fall, is right now.

Preparing now for a successful future

When you plant seeds, you do so with the hopes of them sprouting and turning into a meal of yours. You are taking action now believing what the future results will be.

That’s why it’s so important to start preparing and getting ready for your fall garden now. You need to come up with the plan, so when the time comes in a few weeks, you have everything you need ready to go.

Come the fall you will be rewarded by the work you did when you are harvesting those veggies that you planted in the summer.

What you can plan right now

The easiest thing for you to do is to use my Veggie Virgin Formula to figure out what you can plant in the next month or so and start gathering the seeds you’ll need.

If you are buying seeds, check out SeedsNow.com (one of my sponsors) and use the code URBAN10 to get a 10% discount.

    Just a heads up, your second Fall Gardening 101 link redirects to a dead link.

    I hear that. Between moving and travel, I didn’t get a summer garden planted.
