Fall Vegetable Gardening Guide for Texas

It’s not too late to plant a fall garden. Follow this fall vegetable gardening guide for Texas. 

In most areas of Texas, it is possible to have a fall vegetable garden, but it will need to be managed somewhat differently than a spring garden.

Locating the garden

If your spring garden was successful, the same location should work well in the fall. When planning a new garden, keep in mind that vegetable crops must have at least 8 hours of direct sun each day and should be planted where the soil drains well.

Preparing the soil

If you’re using an established garden area, pull out all plant material—the remains of your spring crop and any weeds that have grown up in the garden. Don’t put plant residue from a spring garden into your compost bin because it is likely to be contaminated with insects and disease pathogens.
