Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman says now is the time to start planting fall vegetable gardens.  In fact, it's already late to start tomatoes from seed, although seedling can still be planted.  Wayne says it's important to take into account the average date of the first frost, generally the second week of November for Hunt County.  Beans, corn and squash won't survive the frost, but cabbage, broccoli and kale will be all right.
