Extending the harvest.

With good planning and care, you can reap fresh garden produce from spring through fall. If summer crops finish early, replant the gaps with second sowings of lettuces and peas. Started in late August, salad ingredients will flourish during the cooler days of autumn. When hard frost threatens, you can keep fall crops growing by covering rows with an insulative garden fabric, such as Reemay. Chilly weather enhances the flavor, color, and crunch of many leafy vegetables, particularly kale and radicchio.
