If You're Going To Do Any Fall Gardening, Better Get Started

Texas A&M Agrilife

Wayne Bowman, Hunt County Master Gardener, says if you intend to grow any fall vegetables, time is running out.  It's important to plant so that you can harvest a crop before the first frost by around mid-November.  Wayne recommends buying transplants from garden centers at this point, in particular the "cole crops," such as cabbage, turnips and collard greens.  Wayne also discusses soil testing in this conversation.

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.
