Fall Vegetable Gardening Starts Now
By Marsha Goldberg, Fairfax Master Gardener
You’re finally enjoying the luscious bounty from your garden, the payoff for all the hard work you did this spring by starting seeds or moving transplants to your plot. You can pick most of those wonderful summer vegetables and use the pungent herbs right up until the first frost kills them. In Fairfax County the first frost hits somewhere between October 19th and October 29th to the west of I-95 and early November to the east and south, according to the Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE).
