What to plant in October
October. October is the South Carolina State Fair. October is Halloween, fall festivals and as the leaves are slowly fading from summer green to autumn red, orange, yellow and brown, your October garden is fixing to come alive with various shades of green- light green, blue green, yellow green and every green in between. Think of it as a role reversal.
September in mid- to lower South Carolina is usually too hot to plant your greens, however, October is a fantastic month to get started.
I enjoy planting three different beds in October- a kale bed, a mustard bed (great if you own an iguana) and a lettuce bed.
