Vegetables

    • Prepare the fall vegetable garden by incorporating organic amendments into the soil. Allow about 3 weeks between the incorporation of amendments and planting. Cool-season vegetables/herbs that can be planted include: beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, collards, kohlrabi, mustard, onions, parsley, radishes and turnips.

    • Begin planting strawberries in mid to late October. Set out strawberry plants in the garden, in planters or in “strawberry jars”. For more information view the UF/IFAS publication "Strawberries in the Florida Garden" (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/VH029).
