“Most of us think of spring as gardening season, but fall provides a terrific opportunity for another harvest. Squash, beans and even potatoes can be planted over the coming weeks, along with other vegetables.

Alas, it’s too late for tomatoes. They should have been planted back in July. (But I planted some in mid-September once and had the best fall harvest ever.) And it’s probably a little early for cool weather plants like lettuce.”

When to plant

“When to plant depends on where you live and your inclination. Some like to brave the hot end of summer, hoping for early harvests. Others are willing to risk waiting for cooler days and count on a late frost.”
