Late seeding for fall harvest

Several vegetables, if planted carefully and at the right time, are especially suitable for harvesting during the cool, moist days of late summer and fall. These crops include bush snap bean, beet, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, chard, Chinese cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, radish, spinach and turnip.

Seed broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower in hills in early June and thin soon after germination to a single plant in each hill. Seed bush snap bean, beet, carrot, cucumber and turnip in the garden in late June and thin plants soon after germination. You can plant seeds of short-season vegetables such as chard, leaf lettuce, radish and spinach as late as mid-July in southern Wisconsin.
