In case you want to grow fall vegetables in your garden, this is surely one of the easiest things to do. This is so, because the fall vegetables don’t require any special care and you don’t need to spend much time on them.
The autumn conditions for growing are perfect for many vegetables, but preferably the experts grow kale, collards, lettuce, spinach, turnips, rutabagas, broccoli, cauliflower, mustard and others. All of these grow well in the autumn temperature and don’t depend on the sun.
For instance, the Mache, which is an autumn plant, grows very fast and it can be grown in the winter too. In case you are worried about the diseases, you don’t even need to use special fertilizers or sprays since in autumn the soil is richer, so therefore the autumn vegetables are usually stronger and healthier than the summer ones.
The most common disease is the aphids and they are really a problem. Just for any case buy a special spray that will protect your vegetables against aphids. As for the plants growth, it will start rapidly, but when the days become shorter and colder it will slow down. This is normal, so at the end of the autumn you can remove the plants and leave only those of them, who can survive in the winter.
