Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment I want to talk about how to plant a Fall vegetable garden. Now, we always get so excited to have a vegetable garden and as soon as that last frost sets into Spring, we plant everything, and then we have a gorgeous vegetable garden for the Summer. But then by the Fall, everything is kind of done and we've cleaned it up. Now there's a lot of vegetables that you can plant in the Summer time, that'll grow and you can harvest later into the Fall. Especially, if you have a greenhouse, you can plant three, plant your vegetables through August and September. Now you want to make sure in the Fall vegetable garden, if you live in a climate like the North West, where we have warm Falls. We can put melons and cucumbers and lots of the warmer climate vegetables in there. If you live in a climate that gets cold in the Fall, then you want to make sure and only have peas and spinach and plants that are more cold climate vegetables. That when it get cold at night, they're just not going to die immediately. But by just mixing up your vegetables and even by adding some plastic through the Fall, you can extend your vegetable garden way into the Fall and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
