Hi all. Recomendations for fall planting zone 4?

Hi all. Recomendations for fall planting zone 4?

Post  Amy in Idaho on 8/8/2010, 1:03 am

Its been a while since I have made any posts. First year I have done a SFG and holy cow! I have had the best crops ever! Things that wouldn't grow before in my traditional garden have grown like crazy in SFG. I will be posting some pictures soon. I have never been so happy with my garden. So now it's getting to the point where some of my boxes are empty and I am wondering what I can plant in the fall. I read on another post broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, and carrots. What else grows good in the fall?

Hi Amy,

So glad to hear your garden is growing well! Smile This is my first year with SFG and I am really happy with it too.

I have a lot of hopes for fall crops -- milkweed (thanks Nancy!), pumpkins which I started over the 4th of July weekend, kale (thanks ander!), mustard, parsnips, celery, cauliflower, more brassicas... my biggest problem right now is finding places to put them all. I think it's finally time to tear out my basil and make pesto. I've been leaving my carrots alone to try to get them bigger... I may do that in a few weeks to make room for the parsnips. (Timing off, there??)

I had originally intended more chard for a fall crop, but my spring planting is still going strong. That stuff just keeps going!
