If you are hoping for a fall harvest with things like lettuce, kale, spinach, and other leafy greens, now is the time to throw those in the ground.

 

If you act quickly getting these into the ground, you could get a quick turnaround for a decent harvest during the fall months. Master Gardener at the University of Illinois Extension Office, Candace Hart says you can also throw some root crops in the mix. 

 

 

According to Hart, advanced gardeners will create a greenhouse effect and extend the life of their garden. Otherwise, things are at the mercy of the first frost of the fall.

 

 

If you had to bring any trees down or are looking to add trees to your property, Hart says this is also a really good time to get those in the ground.
