I'd like to plant more vegetables mid-summer to continue the harvest into the fall. What vegetables do you recommend for the mid-south region? We're gardening in containers on our patio, so we're somehwat limited.

Most vegetables will adapt to growing in containers so don't let that stop you from planting fall crops in late August or early September. Grow leaf lettuce, radishes, spinach, turnips and peas, which can be started from seed. Lettuce and radish can be seeded about every two weeks. Broccoli, cauliflower and collard plants can be planted toward the middle of August all the way through mid-September.

For hardy crops like cabbage, cauliflower and collards, count back from your average first frost date (October 11) the number of days the vegetable takes to mature (listed on the seed package), and plant at that time.

Best wishes with your garden!
