We’re inching closer and closer to fall, y’all. That makes my heart so happy. I love this time of year – especially in the garden. Earlier in the week I shared a few tips on getting our tools primed and ready, now it’s time to get some inspiration for what to plant!
Here’s a collection of ideas I’m thinking about. What’s on your fall planting list?

Some of the things I planted in the spring will carry over, like my tomatoes. Other things I have to plant fresh. For instance…
One of my favorite things to plant in cooler weather is lettuce. So many varieties grow really well in the fall – and they’re quick to sprout straight from a packet of seeds! Instant gratification. Rosie our rabbit kinda loves it, too.
I also love planting fresh batches of parsley, basil and chives this time of year.
If you want a few other ideas, this is a little cheat sheet I tore out of a magazine back in 2008. Not even kidding. I keep this tucked away in my “garden” files. Yes, I have a manila folder for stuff like this. #cantstopwontstop
If you zoom in, you’ll see broccoli, peppers, beets, radishes, spinach, cauliflower and peas added to this list.
In addition to tending to my personal farmer’s market, I like to jazz up the rest of the garden and entryway with some fall flair. I shift my overall color palette away from pinks and move toward purples. Pumpkins add a pretty orange accent.
