Dougo says, “Plant in August to enjoy food from the garden all winter long!
The August Plant Sale event will feature many fall and winter crops that should go in the ground at the end of August/beginning of September in order to size up in the last of summer’s heat before the weather cools and the days shorten.” Watch the video to learn more about what to plant in the winter garden.
