What Vegetables Can Be Planted in Raised Beds in October?

What vegetables can be planted in October? Will you grow your plants in a greenhouse or in a raised garden bed? Because the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are starting to drop, some people may believe that there aren't many vegetables that can be successfully sown and harvested at this time of year. In this article, we show you what you can sow in October in USA zones 4b, 5a, 5b, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b, 9a, 9b, 10a, 10b, 11a, 11b, 12a, 12b, 13a, 13b, to be harvested in the fall, winter, or next year.

Three reasons why you need a metal raised garden bed for fall planting.

Heat the soil. During the day, metal panels absorb sunlight and continue to heat the soil in garden beds at night. As a result, the garden bed can protect the plants in the bed from wind and cold at any time of day or night, while also promoting plant growth.

Prevent soil waterlogging. In some areas, there is a possibility of frequent rainfall and even flooding in the autumn. Metal raised garden beds effectively increase the distance between the soil and the ground.  Therefore, it will not cause soil waterlogging, which can lead to excessive waterlogging and root system damage.

Extend fall planting time. The use of metal raised garden beds can effectively extend the time of planting in autumn. Due to light, climate, and temperature, it can be difficult to grow healthy and productive crops in some areas in the late fall. Metal garden beds absorb sunlight and create a warm bed environment, which not only protects the plant roots and rhizomes but also helps to extend the planting time. Some semi-hardy crops will benefit from this.

4 vegetables you can't miss planting in October!

Most of the vegetables that can be grown in October are cold-tolerant vegetables. What are the essential vegetables you can't miss in October? Garlic, cabbage, Spanish, and onions must be present. Furthermore, fresh vegetables harvested in the fall can be properly stored to extend their freshness and, when properly preserved, can provide a full winter supply. More information can be found at 3 key points to keep veggies fresh after picking from a raised garden bed in Vegega. Now, let's talk about the four veggies.

Cabbage: Cabbage is a kale variety that matures 11–15 weeks after planting and is an excellent choice for the home vegetable garden. There are many varieties of cabbage, and those that withstand the cold or frost have darker leaves and stronger flavors. You'll enjoy the stronger flavors of cabbage in salads and soups.

Spinach: Spinach is another leafy green that appears frequently on the table in the fall and winter. It can be harvested 5–11 weeks after planting. Spinach grows best in cool weather and sets seeds quickly in warm weather. Seeds can be sown in the fall and can be overwintered if protected by mulch. Although spinach can be grown all year round, its flavour is best in the late fall and winter. You should try it. The flavour will enchant you.

Garlic: Garlic is a vegetable that prefers low temperatures and is also an essential flavoring agent on the table. The low temperature of the growing environment allows the bulb to split into the various cloves. Garlic is often referred to as a vegetable "plan on the shortest day, harvest on the longest" because it takes 17–25 weeks to mature after planting. After planting the garlic, a good layer of mulch should be applied to the metal raised bed to ensure that it survives the cold winter.

Onion: Onions grow well in cold weather and have a long growing cycle, taking 25–34 weeks to mature after planting. Onions can survive all frosts and sub-zero temperatures, so you can find them perfectly in your garden bed even in the cold of winter. One thing to keep in mind is that onions should be planted in the fall to avoid rapid temperature changes, especially at night. Unpredictable weather can lead to uneven onion growth. You can keep them in a greenhouse, or if you don't have one, plant them in a raised bed with a sheltered area.
