Fresh vegetables are delicious and healthy for you. And they’re even better when they can be harvested at home right from your own backyard.

The fall season is a great time to get started. The average planting dates for these fall vegetables in Texas’ gardening Region III, which is home to The Woodlands Hills, are:

  • Sept. 1 – beans, snap bush, potato, spinach, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber
  • Sept. 10 – summer squash, kohlrabi
  • Oct. 1 – Swiss chard, collards, garlic cloves
  • Oct. 10 – leaf lettuce, parsley
  • Oct. 15 – beets
  • Nov. 1 – mustard, onion, turnip
  • Nov. 10 – carrots
  • Nov. 25 – radish

Fall is also a great time to plant a variety of culinary herbs to use for flavoring in foods. Mild or savory herbs, such as parsley, dill, and mint, impart a delicate flavor to food, while the stronger or pungent herbs such as basil, rosemary, sage, and tarragon, add a zesty accent.

As an option to planting your own fall garden, or for rounding out your selection, visit a local farmer’s market. These two farmer’s markets are located just minutes away from The Woodlands Hills in downtown Conroe:

  • Conroe Saturday a.m. Market – 135 N Main St.
  • Isaac Conroe Farmer’s Market– Founder’s Plaza- 205 Metcalf

Enjoy the harvest this fall!
