Take Advantage of the Cooler Weather and Grow a Fall Garden

In warmer parts of the country, broccoli, kale, collards, spinach, lettuce, Swiss chard, and a number of wonderful herbs (like rosemary and cilantro) grow just as well in fall as they do in spring. Besides keeping fresh produce on the table beyond the summer months, there are other benefits to gardening in the fall: fewer insects and diseases to battle, less watering to be done, and less sweat to contend with.
