The Q&A Archives: Ohio Fall Planting

Question: Is there anything vegetables I can plant in OH now that will produce? I know I cant plant garlic in the fall but is there anything else that even has a chance of surviving?

Answer: There aren't too many plants that will have time to grow and mature before your first frost, but you can try leaf lettuce, radish, baby carrots - virtually anything that doesn't have to flower to produce a fruit. Try to find short season varieties and you should be able to harvest before winter weather sets in. Next year you can start seeds or transplants in August for a fall harvest. Enjoy your garden.
