20 Vegetables To Plant In Your Fall Vegetable Garden

Fall is right around the corner, and while my Summer plants are still thriving, I am itching to start my Fall vegetable garden. If you are someone who grows from seed, you can get started now with a lot of plants that will be ready to harvest when the time comes. For me, I still use transplants, so I will wait until some are available at my local nursery. 

Before you get started, make sure to amend your soil with some compost, you can visit this post here to learn what to compost, or buy some organic nutrients from your local nursery. If you want to keep track of what you are planning, be sure to check out my vegetable garden planner. It is extremely helpful to get from seed to spoon. 

Find Your Grow Zone & First Frost Date

After amending your soil and getting your Summer plants out of there, be sure to check your grow zone. Not every plant works for every zone, and you can check the back of your seeds that will let you know exactly when to plant for your zone. Use my free zone checker to find your zone. 

Next, you will need to find your frost date. Your frost date is when the first big freeze for your garden will occur. After amending your soil and getting your Summer plants out of there, be sure to check your grow zone.

Next, you will need to find your frost date. Your frost date is when the first big freeze for your garden will occur. 

  • Light freeze: 29° to 32°F—tender plants are killed.
  • Moderate freeze: 25° to 28°F—widely destructive to most vegetation.
  • Severe freeze: 24°F and colder—heavy damage to most plants.

For more information on how frost dates are calculated, visit the National Centers for Environmental Information. Use this calculator to find your particular frost date.
