Vegetables to plant in October

I can’t believe October is upon us.  Where did the summer go?  If you live in zone 8b I hope you had a chance to plant a second summer garden in August and September.  From now till spring it will be all cool season crops.  Cool season crops are wonderful but there is just nothing about a fresh tomato from the garden.  It took me until last week end to finally get all my September seeds planted, but even with the squirrels digging in the beds I see they are beginning to sprout.  I’ll post pictures in my next garden update post.

This time,  I will put a * next to the vegetable that October is either the only or the last month this year to plant them.  This way, if it is a vegetable you really like, you will know not to procrastinate but to go ahead and get it planted.
