Question by  Izzyonu (4)

If I plant in August, when should I expect to harvest?

I live in New Jersey, so I'm not sure what I would plant.

There is not much of a choice if planting this time of year due to frost. I would suggest planting something that will harvest quick such as radishes and greens.

August tends to be late to plant, but there are crops that do well in the cooler temperatures of late August and September. Plant carrots, radishes, lettuces, spinach and peas. Radishes mature around 20 days from sowing. Lettuces, spinach and peas take little over a month. Carrots will take longer. Mulch around them before a frost, and harvest in October.
