And in the meantime, whether you need garden supplies, vegetables and herbs, or other items to get your garden started this season, we have everything you need right at Sunny Valley Farms!

Leafy Greens

Vegetables like spinach, lettuce, kale, and Swiss chard thrive in cooler temperatures. Fall planting allows them to grow without the risk of bolting (premature flowering) that can occur in hot weather, leading to bitter-tasting leaves. They can also tolerate light frosts.


Carrots are another versatile root vegetable that can tolerate light frosts, making them ideal for fall planting. Their sweet and crunchy texture adds a burst of flavor to soups, stews, and salads. With the proper mulching, you can even keep carrots in the ground during colder months, ensuring a continuous harvest!

Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are great vegetables to plant in the fall season because they also thrive in colder temperatures. Believe it or not, the cooler temperatures also help enhance their flavor! This is because the cold weather triggers the conversion of starches into sugars in the sprouts, helping them develop a sweeter taste.


This root vegetable also performs well in the fall. Similar to Brussels sprouts, cooler temperatures can lead to the accumulation of sugar in beets, resulting in a sweeter flavor. Beets that are harvested in the fall can also have a longer storage life compared to ones harvested in the warmer months. Cool and consistent fall temperatures can help preserve the quality of harvested beets for a longer period, allowing you to enjoy them well into the winter.

Broccoli and Cauliflower

Broccoli and cauliflower are cruciferous vegetables that also prefer colder temperatures and mature well during the fall. Since fall is more stable with less extreme heat and drought, there are more consistent soil temperature levels. This is essential for the development of well-formed and high-quality broccoli and cauliflower heads.
