Food Gardening Magazine Reveals the 5 Vegetables to Plant in October | News
BOSTON, October 5, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Food Gardening Network, editor of Food Gardening Magazine, has its October 2021 Edition with a list of five vegetables to plant in a cold frame or prepare now for a spring harvest.
In the article and accompanying video on 5 vegetables to plant in October, Senior Editor Amanda MacArthur Provides tips on using a cold frame to grow three crops in cool weather for an early winter harvest, and two more vegetables to get you started right away for an early spring harvest.
MacArthur writes that “There really is no ‘end of season’ for a gardener, no matter what time of year.
The five vegetables presented include:
1. Onions – Onions are robust and can withstand cold temperatures, especially when placed in a cold frame. As long as they have loose soil, they will grow almost anywhere.
2. Carrots – Sow carrot seeds directly into the ground in loose soil and you can enjoy them in about 60 days. Of course, as long as they aren’t blooming, you can leave your carrots in the soil until the soil freezes.
3. Spinach – You can still harvest spinach in the late season, but as long as it’s in a cold frame, your spinach will rest through winter and grow back sometime in February.
4. Arugula – Arugula makes a great addition to any salad and is tough enough to grow in a cold frame over the winter. Sow the seeds about an inch apart in rows that are six inches apart. Cover lightly with soil as arugula seeds need sunlight to germinate.
5. Garlic – Do you want to get a head start on next season’s harvest? Now plant garlic. Your garlic will develop strong roots over the winter and after the initial thaw it will be ready to take off for a quick spring harvest.
The October issue of Food Gardening Magazine also features articles and videos like Planning a Garden with the Best Vegetables for Pickling and Conservation, which encourages gardeners to think ahead of time about all the vegetables that make great storage items so they can potentially plan a more sustainable and longer term harvest for the next year.
Another exciting task in harvest time is to save the seeds of your beloved vegetables. In How to Get Seeds from Your Vegetables to Saving for Next Year, MacArthur walks us step-by-step through collecting, washing, drying, and storing seeds for the next season. Also editor-in-chief of Food Gardening Magazine Norann Oleson 10 ideas for sharing all those pumpkins around the house in What to Do with Pumpkins After the Harvest.
The October issue of Food Gardening Magazine offers readers four feature articles, four how-to videos (including a fun tutorial on three different ways to pickle vegetables), and three collection close-ups that focus on carrots, pumpkins, and rosemary .
