Fall is the time for Seeding Early

Fall is such a great time for gardening – seed now for the BEST flavors and sweet taste: Peas, Lettuce, Radishes, Arugula, Spinach!

No room in your garden? All the above can be grown well in containers. Indoors, too! Well lit rooms, away from a draft, and you’ll see progress in those pots.

LETTUCE: Lettuce comes up quickly and is easy to seed. Grow this in containers or in your garden. Try Renee’s Monet Mix, Baby Romaine, or Red Deer Tongue. They’re so beautiful and delicious!

BEETS: Also easy, and healthy as well. Choose from a variety of gorgeous, vivid colors, and enjoy! Great for beet greens as well!

PEAS: Peas are a pleasure to seed. They’re great producers, and they *love* cool nights. They’re ideal for freezing if you want that garden-fresh flavor in the winter. And a bonus – the flowers and shoot tips are edible, too! Try that in your next fresh salad!

ARUGULA: My favorite! Fast germination to table time, this peppery flavor is great with a mix of lettuces. Just add a little goat cheese and sunflower seeds, drizzle on your favorite dressing and, voila!

RADISHES: Full of crunchy kick – radishes love the upcoming fall weather. Cool temperatures make them taste great, too. Delicious as snacks (don’t forget the beer and pretzels!). Seed now for best results!
