If you can't bear to see the season come to an end, plant a fall vegetable garden. As your vegetable garden starts to wind down, plant a variety of cold weather crops in August that you can begin harvesting in September all the way through November. There are many vegetables that are cold hardy, including asian greens, lettuces, cabbages, arugula. I love having fresh salad and other side dishes fresh from the garden on my Thanksgiving table. Cover your veggies with a cold frame or hoop house to extend your growing season. It's amazing how long you can keep growing vegetables with cold frames.
