It's Time to Plant More Veggies!

VeggiesHarvesting the last of your summer vegetables? Don't be sad, be glad! Now you have room to plant a fall vegetable garden.

This is the ideal time to sow seeds for your favorite greens, beans, carrots, and other edibles. In fact, it's actually easier to start vegetables and herbs from seed in the heat of the summer rather than in spring, when temperatures fluctuate wildly and soil can be wet and cold. Just be sure to choose ones that can be planted before the last average frost date in spring; that way, you know they can take some cold.

If you're looking for a wide selection of seeds to choose from, try Kitchen Garden Seeds. They have unique varieties, including some beautiful salad greens.

You'll also find seeds you can plant now at Johnny's Selected Seeds. 'Bright Lights' Swiss Chard is an All-America Selections winner and milder than most chards. And check out the gorgeous 'Touchstone Gold' beets!

Plant a garden in August for a summer that never ends.
Buy your seeds today for a fall vegetable garden.
