It's time to plant fall season crops

By Seth Nagy
For the Salisbury Post
Cool season vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, spinach and lettuce produce their best flavor during the cooler growing season in the fall.
Now is the time to plant broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots and cauliflower. Wait until August to plant quicker maturing vegetables like turnips, kale, lettuce and spinach. Onions, mustards and radishes can be planted in September.
Before planting, remove the previous crop and any weeds. Prepare the soil by tilling or spading 6 to 8 inches deep.
