The summer harvest is still in full swing, but don't put off planting vegetables you can enjoy this fall and next spring.

Local gardeners may still be busy picking the peppers, tomatoes and zucchini started back in June, but now is the time to plant crops that will be ready to harvest throughout the fall and next spring.

A successful fall garden is all about planning, preparation and timing; knowing how long it takes for plants to mature and when to expect temperatures to drop below freezing in our region.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the best crops to plant in your fall garden and to answer your questions are Campbell County Extension Office Horticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Director of the Turner Farm Community Garden Program and Co-overseer of Homeadow Song Farm, Peter Huttinger; and Boone County Cooperative Extension Horticulture Extension Agent David Koester.

Make note of Turner Farm's upcoming gardening programs, and see Boone County Extension program information, as well as classes and events in Campbell County.

Tune in to Cincinnati Edition August 22 at 1 p.m. to hear this segment.
