Swiss chard is just one of the many vegetables you can plant now to harvest and enjoy this fall.

The gardeners who were able to get their plants in despite the almost constant rains this spring and have had the time to properly tend to them during the extremely hot, dry summer months are finally able to harvest and enjoy their crops. 

And now it's time to start again, putting in beets, carrots, kale and other vegetables that grow well in the cooler fall weather. 

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss succession planting to extend your growing season, and to answer your gardening questions, are Campbell County Extension Office Horticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Turner Farm Community Garden Manager Joshua Jones; 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.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
