This fall garden planning guide contains information about the selection of crops, setting a planting schedule, and getting the soil ready for the crops the gardener has chosen. The information specifically is for gardeners in the Southeastern U.S., in plant hardiness zones 7, 8, and 9, from the Carolinas and across to East Texas. The book represents a combination of research and the experiences that helped the author's fall garden be more successful. The hope is that other Southern gardeners can benefit, too. This book is not a general guide to vegetable gardening, and some topics are touched on only as needed to make adjustment for the fall garden. The book does provide a full overview of what a gardener needs to do to get the garden ready for planting, which crops will be most successful in the fall garden in the Southeastern US, and information about three common pests - and how to manage them - in fall gardens. The book describes steps to follow to create a personalized planting schedule, including an example schedule from the author's garden. A blank schedule for readers to use is on pages 62-63. The section about individual fall garden crops provides details about each of twenty-four different cool-season crops that a Southern gardener might want to grow.
Amy Whitney has been growing vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers in her Georgia yard for more than 25 years. Before moving to Georgia, she kept a vegetable garden for two years on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Her gardening experience includes work with a Plant-a-Row-for-the-Hungry garden that "went organic" while she was actively with the group, and helping local community gardens as a guide and trouble-shooting consultant. Supporting that practical experience are study and research in the form of a degree in Botany and nearly five years of work in horticulture at her county's Cooperative Extension office. In addition to writing online for her gardening blog, she speaks about gardening and related topics and gives workshops and classes for her county's Master Gardener group, for garden clubs, and other interested groups.
