Default Fall Garden Thread..

I wanted to start a fall garden thread and learn from the experts. I have always had a summer garden and am very interested in what the experts here find does well in Texas. I am in central Texas... but I know there are lots of folks here that have mentioned a fall garden. What is your best veggies to plant and be productive with?

I'm in. Had a great year with green beans and tomatoes this spring. Looking forward to some asparagus, cauliflower and whatever else I can grow.

I wonder if artichokes would work in north Texas or if it's not the right climate

I always do much better with fall potatoes than in the spring. It is hard to find seed potatoes in the fall though. I usually go with red potatoes from Whole Foods as they haven't been treated to keep from sprouting.

I am guessing if I want fall tomatoes, I really need to start them from seed pretty soon. Right?

I started my fall garden yesterday. In between rain I filled the garden and managed to get green beans, 2 types of spinach, lettuce, zucchini, and cucumbers. We have som broccoli, pumpkin, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in small pots waiting for transplant.

My lettuce has come up. Bunching onions going strong. Looks like watermelons are gonna make all the way to frost(or at least time change). All the peppers(japs, bananas, shi****o, bells are going nuts. I'll get some garlic and spinach in the ground this week. Brocoli will go in this week also.

My dwarf okra in 5-6 gallon buckets from the late spring is still producing. But it has slowed down a great deal. I may use the stalks as stakes for some kinda beans or the like. Although the variety didn't grow really tall (3-4 feet) like many other okra, some of the stalks are almost 2 inches at the base.

Zinnias and marigolds for pollinators. Periwinkles for asthetics along with coreopsis and mexican petunia. Standing cypress, lantana, butterfly weed are perennials for the hummingbirds and butterflies.

Marigolds are also a natural insect repellent for some species of insects. I planted some with my late spring okra. And they are still going very strong. Some are just about 2.5 feet tall. They will fall over if not somehow supported when that tall.
