What are you planting this fall? Good options for our area include kale, kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots, onion and rutabagas. Summer Winds Nursery in Palo Alto even recommends strawberries!
From their website: Yes, you can grow strawberries in autumn! The mild weather helps their roots to get nicely established, making for a big, flavorful, and extra healthy harvest.
Here’s a few classes to help you decide what, when and how:
