Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says fall is an excellent time to plant greens, the leafy tops of vegetables that many people enjoy as much or more than the main part of the plant.  Byron says in particular now is the time to plant mustard greens, which are a warmer season crop.  He categorizes beets, broccoli, cabbage and collards as winter greens, which do better in cooler weather.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
