What to Grow in OCTOBER in Central Texas


Perfect in pots or containers and you can even bring them indoors during harsh freezing temperatures.

Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard is a work horse in the garden. This is one leafy green that can take some heat and doesn't mind cool temps as well.


Nothing beats home grown carrots! Start planting carrot seeds mid to late September. Plant every two weeks through October.


If you haven't had home grown broccoli, then you are missing out. This is a favorite of mine that I grow ever year.


Fall is a great time to grow cauliflower. There are several varities to grow including purple and cheddar colors.


Plant beets now to have some ready for Thanksgiving! Plant every two weeks through October.


For shorter winters choose cabbages that have fewer days to harvest (55-85 days) for best success.


Start kale by seed or buy from a nursery to plant and grow all fall and winter long.
