Host Richard Hentschel discusses vegetable gardening late into the season. Hardy crops will continue until a hard frost or light freeze, some crops like Swiss Chard will continue to grow even after that. Sowing greens like spinach and lettuces for a harvest of microgreens can easily be done. Season extenders get those warm season vegetables like peppers and tomatoes a few more weeks of productive growth.
Green Side Up is a gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
