11 Good Reasons to Plant a Fall Garden
Cooler temperatures and less intense sun make fall gardening much kinder in the body
Cooler temperatures, less intense heat from the sun, and shorter sunlight hours mean less drying and evaporation
Insects can be an issue in the fall, too, but by the end of summer and into the fall, insect pressure is much, much less.
As with insects, disease can still happen but a lot of the factors that cause and spread garden diseases will be on the decline, too
Weeds don't proliferate in the fall like they do in the summer
Look to roots, cole crops, and greens to round out your fall garden.
There are several vegetables that perform better in cooler weather. Some even improve in flavor after a frost
Fresh crops that can only be eaten in-season may only be worth a small amount of space.
