With the temperatures dropping, now is the perfect time to focus on your fall garden. Try planting crops like lettuce, peas, broccoli, carrots, kale and more that thrive in cooler temperatures.
Cooler temperatures also mean it’s the perfect time to prep your garden for spring. Gardening in the fall has several benefits, including fewer bugs, less watering and fewer weeds.
The team at Atlanta’s Shades of Green Permaculture offers tips for spring prep:
• Clean up the garden and replenish the soil
• Cut dead blooms and seedheads into the garden bed
• Plant perennials, trees and shrubs
• Tend to your beds with sheet mulch
