Growing frost-tolerant vegetables in the fall allows you to extend your growing season and continue enjoying fresh produce even as temperatures start to drop. Here are ten frost-tolerant vegetables that you can grow in the fall:
Kale: Kale is a cold-hardy leafy green that actually improves in flavor after exposure to light frost. Its sturdy leaves can withstand chilly temperatures, making it an excellent choice for fall gardens.
Spinach is another leafy green that can handle frost well. It’s best to choose cold-resistant varieties for your fall garden, and you’ll have a fresh supply of nutritious greens well into the cooler months.
Certain lettuce varieties, such as Romaine and some loose-leaf types, can tolerate light frost. They can be grown in containers or directly in the ground.
