I plant indeterminate tomatoes and mine are still very productive and will be til frost. My favorite farm stand has lots of kinds of peppers. Potatoes, onions, turnips, parsnips....are they fall vegetables? Several green beans were listed among the favorites. Here they can be planted and harvested over an extended period. I could mention several more. What are fall vegetables?

That's a question we asked here in our house for several days leading up to this celebration week. Smiling Basically, what you said. Veggies harvested in the fall are fall harvested veggies. For most of us that means winter squash, pumpkins, beans, sweet potatoes, and such like.

For some reason my mind is full of gardening trivia, some of which proves not to be true. I do remember in my area that someone was having problems with their green beans. The expert suggested planing green beans here in July instead of May. The early ones fell prey to insect damage but insects were finished by July so those beans flourished.....
