About Fall Vegetables

Vegetable plants don’t care what season it is, as long as their basic growing conditions are met. Gardeners in warmer climates may be able to grow “fall vegetables” all winter long. Colder areas, on the other hand, have a shortened growing season in late summer, before autumn snowfall begins.

Fall vegetables are considered cool-season vegetables, which means that they will thrive under these growing conditions:

  • Daytime temperatures between 60° and 80° F (the cooler the better).
  • Nighttime temperatures above 40° F (a light frost is usually okay).
  • 6 hours of sunshine per day.
  • Rich, well-draining soil.
  • One inch or more of water per week.

Vegetables grown in the fall include:

  • Beets
  • Broccoli

  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Turnips
