Fall has been generous to us at the Broadway & Victoria Temporary Community Garden––plenty of sun, warm days, and rain when it counts. A quick glance at the weather forecast, unfortunately, and you'll see those warm days are now behind us.
It's that time of the year again––cool mornings, a break from the smoke, orange tints in the tree leaves. Lucky for us, fall is also a time of bounty and ripeness. Tomatoes, squash and corn are coming into their full colour and sweetness, and the soil is still warm enough to germinate those same cold-hardy seeds you first planted way back in the spring.
Use this handy chart from Farmer's Almanac to find out seeding dates for specific plants. Note that Vancouver's first frost date tends to come in early November, so the October 30th column is a pretty accurate bet for our climate.
