Carson City, NV – September 28, 2017 – Summer may be the ideal time to grow vegetables for most gardeners, but gardening in the fall is equally as charming and productive. Fall gardening is loved by many because it’s the perfect chance to extend the growing season. Planting in autumn will produce a fresh bounty of leafy greens and other cold crop vegetables for the whole family to enjoy in the cooler months ahead.
Home and Garden America, a non-gmo company based in Nevada, has always been one for fall gardening. “Just because spring is over doesn’t mean you should wrap up your garden already. It would be a shame not to take advantage of the beautiful autumn climate—fall harvests are actually some of the best ones we’ve ever had. If you’re not growing vegetables in this season, then you’re really missing out on something truly special,” said a company representative.
To have a successful fall garden, choosing the right crops to grow is very important. Home and Garden America considers broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, onion, spinach and turnip to be the best cool-season crops to plant.
“These particular vegetables thrive well in cooler conditions. They become sweeter and crisper because of the cold temperature, making them a delightful autumn treat,” the representative added.
Taking things one step further, Home and Garden America prefers to grow heirloom cool-season crops because of the rare varieties available. The remarkable tastes and unique characteristics of the heirloom veggies make fall gardening incredibly fun and exciting.
Some of Home and Garden America’s most favorite fall heirloom varieties are the following:
• Green Sprouting Broccoli

“Aside from the awesome names, what’s truly great about heirloom varieties is their amazing diversity. The rich flavors, beautiful colors and nutritious content they bring makes them so rewarding to harvest. Since they usually come in different shapes and sizes, each heirloom vegetable is unique in its own way—adding a touch of beauty to any home garden,” the representative continued.
Gardeners who want to try something new this fall should definitely opt for heirloom vegetables. An autumn garden filled with heirloom varieties will not only produce delicious and tremendous yields but will also create a wonderful fall gardening experience that longs to repeated every year.
