So many people give up on their garden once September rolls around. It's true that some of the more tender veggies can't take the heat, but there are many tasty vegetables you can plant in September.


There are so many different kinds of carrots! Different colors, different shapes, and yes--slightly different flavors with each. You’ll probably want to try several different kinds.


Going out to the garden to pick a salad for dinner is the best! And, of course, the foundation for a delicious salad is great lettuce.


Yep, that's me with a giant homegrown cabbage. It's not hard to grow, and your neighbors will be amazed when you show off your giant cabbage!


Radishes are a super easy crop to grow and are a great choice when gardening with kids.


We call broccoli "happy little trees" as a tribute to Bob Ross (and as an attempt to get the kids to eat it). There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you get from growing broccoli


Yes, everybody is turning cauliflower into stuff like pizza crust and rice, but it's still delicious roasted, with a sprinkling of parmesan and a splash of lemon juice.


Please don't ever make your family suffer with frozen or canned spinach! Spinach is easy to grow, and is delicious and mild when picked fresh from the garden.


Fresh beets are so much better than those awful canned things we had as kids. And did you know that beets are full of fiber, potassium, folic acid, and vitamin C?


Lots of folks make fun of kale because it’s in everything. Kale chips, kale smoothies, kale salad...the list goes on and on.

Brussel Sprouts

If you haven’t grown Brussels sprouts before, you are in for a treat. These “baby cabbages” grow on a single stalk like a tiny palm tree.
