5 Ideal Vegetables You Must Consider Gardening This Fall



The autumn season is approaching. Your gardening tools are probably hidden and kept for the next spring. Better ready the tools now because fall gardening is not bad as it seems. There are lots of plants you can plant in garden planters during the cold autumn. It is even beneficial since gardeners found out that vegetables that are harvested in fall are sweeter compared in summer. There are lots of vegetables you can plant this fall but below are only five of the most ideal vegetables can consider planting.

Beans and Peas

Even though these vegetables are not usually sown as winter crops, these vegetables love the cool autumn ambiance. If you choose the right and fast-growing variant of beans and peas, you can enjoy a good harvest before winter frost arrives.

Lettuce

If you are up to salad bowls for the season, lettuces is an ideal vegetable you can plant this fall. Growing this vegetable is easy especially to areas that have milder winter. Lettuces also grow all through autumn. If you want your lettuces extend a bit more even after fall, you can simply cover it with a light fabric.

Spinach

Popeye would surely love to grow this in his garden. Spinaches are also great for salads so if you aim to grow this green vegetable this fall, it would be a good choice since spinaches are much more tasty and sweet when the climate is cool. Like lettuces, spinaches will grow throughout the winter season under a light cover of cloth.

Cabbage

Another good vegetable to plant this fall is cabbage. You can simply plant them one foot apart from each other. Earth up the soil around its stem after it have established roots to protect from cold. For areas that have icy weather, covering it with fleece or cloth can be helpful. You should also watch out for pigeons that hang around your garden.

Broccoli

To end the list, you can also have broccoli. This is another Brassica vegetable you may plant in your garden. If you want a surviving broccoli, better plant it in the late summer or ten weeks before the winter frost is anticipated to come. Broccoli takes 70 days to become mature. It can be very delicious when you grow your own broccoli.

Instead of waiting for the long cold seasons to go, better have those gardening tools to work. Know that it's still good to grow your own crops even in fall. Create a vegetable paradise in your garden and ornament it with a stylish solar fountain to give your eyes something to delight. There are lots of other vegetables that are ideal to plant during autumn but these five are the most popular. Just make sure to have vegetables that will work for you. Make sure you will enjoy the choice of vegetable you planted. Having fall vegetable garden can be beneficial since it can give you a good source of food for a lower cost.

Frugal Decor Tip - Recover A Table

My card table gets used a lot and had some tears in it. So as I was redoing my kitchen drawers and shelves with contact paper the idea came to me to recover the table! Easy and was only $2.00! Frugal upcycle of a card table that I was thinking of throwing out! The 2nd piece took longer to put on because I had to match the flowers up. But, I think I did it pretty good!

Homemade Faraday Cage



Prep for this week - Make a faraday cage. 
Went to the hardware store and bought the largest galvanized metal trash can they had. I can already see that I should get a second one next week. 

Wrap everything up with aluminum foil before you place into the can and I am going to line it with cardboard. I have a ton of cardboard from boxes for shipping items. I also have a lot of those Antistatic Bags that I want to place as much as I can into. I have 20 of these. Place the lid on the can real tight and set it off to the side somewhere that won't get bothered. 

Place all of your items in that you can that you will need if something happens and all other things are toast. Like, radios, walkies, handheld scanners, solar chargers, etc.

I am also getting the items together to make a "box" to roll the generator into. galvanized sheeting and wood to make it. Like the wood in and out with the metal sheeting. Hope that would work.
