Cool Weather Veggies in the Southwest

Fall is a good time to plant cooler type vegetables.  But, where does someone in the Southwestern part of New Mexico go to get good fall weather vegetables.  Here in Color Your World Nursery located in Las Cruces, NM we have hundreds of vegetables ready for planting. They arrive on a weekly basis starting in early October and ending in Late November.

Here is a list of some of these fall vegetables:
  1. Lettuces.
  2. Kale for eating or outdoor color.
  3. Beets, Parsnips and Turnips.
  4. Radishes for eating.
  5. Spinach.
  6. Collards.
  7. Peas.
  8. Swiss Chard.
  9. Broccoli.
  10. Cauliflower.
  11. Cabbages.
  12. Onions.

In the Southwestern part of the country we have many light frosts but, most of these vegetables can handle temperatures below 32 degrees  Fahrenheit.  Kale will last all through out the winter months.

Not sure how to make the most out of your fall vegetable garden?  Ask our friendly staff inside our Store.  Or as Gary your gardening question(s) by following this link: Ask Gary Guzman
