It’s Fall Gardening Time!!! Don’t miss your window to grow your garden this fall. Do you know what vegetables you can grow during this season? Well, let me tell you!!! You can grow cabbage, kale, spinach, cauliflower, mustard greens, fall squash varieties, turnip greens, collard greens, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cilantro, a variety of herbs and more!

It’s not too late to get started!!! By the way gardening has 3 great benefits!

  1. Mental Health Benefits: Studies show that gardening can help boost and uplift your mood! (Study retrieved from https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19999748/).
  2. Physical Health Benefits from the exercise that you get as a byproduct of starting and cultivating your garden.
  3. Immune Health Boosting Benefits from eating healthy and whole foods from your garden that are packed with vitamins not to mention you get a nice dose of Vitamin D from the Sun while gardening.

Give it a try! You won’t regret it! An easy way to start is to use patio planters that you can purchase from Lowes or Home Depot. You can get some organic soil from the same stores and then get an organic fertilizer that you can use to feed the garden to help support it’s growth!!! Water it and let the sun do it’s work. 🌱
