Feeling the Chill – Stretching the Organic Garden Into the Fall (2021 NOFA Summer Conference)

Many crops thrive in cool autumn weather and can provide fresh produce into the new year. This workshop will inspire and teach you to grow these fall crops without growing devices such as cold frames. We will cover appropriate crops and varieties, planting dates, rotations, fertility and simple storage techniques. Concentration will be on crops planted after the summer solstice.
