Succession gardening is a second or even a third planting of vegetables in mid- to late-season. Here are some general tips as well as a guide of what to plant after your initial harvest.
Consider the length of the growing season in your climate: How many more weeks of good weather do you have? Choose a variety that will mature in that time or can tolerate frost.
When sowing for fall harvest in areas with early frosts, choose plants that can be eaten young for succession sowing, like beets and carrots, or those that can take a light frost like lettuce or arugula (at left). That way, if cold weather threatens, you can still harvest edible produce.
