Your October Garden
September 2018 will go down in South Carolina history as one of the hottest. September the first ushered in a high temperature of ninety eight degrees. It was even ninety one on September the twenty six, yet usually this is the month to start your cool weather crops. Cool weather crops consist of broccoli, cauliflower, collards, lettuce, mustards, turnips, rape, kale, cabbage, bok choy, rutabaga, and many other greens.
Since September was so hot, our plants suffered. Your winter garden likes cool weather, but is it too late to plant? No, it is not too late to plant, because all the crops listed above are frost resistant. There is a BIG difference between a frost and a freeze.
