How to PERFECTLY Time Your Fall Garden Planting

How to PERFECTLY Time Your Fall Garden Planting

Summer may be winding down, but your garden is NOT done for. Fall gardening is one of my favorite times of year. I love the fall vegetables, and choosing what to plant for fall is an inherently satisfying experience for me.

But…knowing when to plant a fall garden can prove challenging because of the looming frost date. In this video, I will walk you through a formula I use to perfectly calculate my planting so I get everything out of the ground before winter arrives.

    This is so helpful and we all need this spreadsheet ! 😂

  2. Sophia Brown on October 7, 2021 at 8:05 am

    I would love to make a spreadsheet like that for my garden! Is there a video or anything that would help me do that or formulas to learn?

  3. S JT on October 7, 2021 at 8:07 am

    Is the spreadsheet available this year? Would love to download it, even if it costs a few bucks. I’m sure many other people would be willing to pay for your effort as well.

  4. Ana Kamhi on October 7, 2021 at 8:08 am

    Is it too late to plant something in November?? 😣 I live a few miles from you just so you know my zone

  5. Carrie C on October 7, 2021 at 8:14 am

    I really like how how made the little “bubble” so we could still see you while you explained your spreadsheet. Really well done video!

  6. Jan Williams on October 7, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Thanks Kevin. Just this weekend I’m planning out my fall garden. I pretty much figured out like you are teaching by working my way back from our projected first frost. I really like your spreadsheet so I froze the frame and built it. It will be very useful in planning my years of future gardens as well as a look back. Thanks.

  7. Shala Bible on October 7, 2021 at 8:16 am

    I LOVE your spreadsheet! I had created something similar for myself but I love that you put formulas in. That hadn’t crossed my mind yet!!

  8. Traveling Grandma Gardener on October 7, 2021 at 8:18 am

    Love it

  9. Danielle Palmer on October 7, 2021 at 8:19 am

    Thank you for sharing your spreadsheet. I am very analytical and have created my own spreadsheet but I am drowning in information so I have tried different layouts etc. I can’t wait to try yours!

  10. Denise Bolon on October 7, 2021 at 8:21 am

    Awesome spreadsheet. I would love to have a copy!

  11. Mrs. B. on October 7, 2021 at 8:25 am

    👍🌻💗

  12. V. on October 7, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Very nice method. I use pen and notebook, for now. I appreciate you demonstrating your technique. Another great video! Thx

  13. Audrey Wagenblatt on October 7, 2021 at 8:27 am

    I do have a fall gardening question. I live in the south and I’m struggling to find information on how high the temperatures can be to transplant out my leafy greens in the fall without them bolting. It’s mid-September and still in the low 90s. What high temperatures am I looking for to move these fall plant starts outside?

  14. Sparks on October 7, 2021 at 8:27 am

    We want the spreadsheet, we will riot

  15. Frank D on October 7, 2021 at 8:28 am

    Like everyone else, I would like to purchase that spreadsheet from you.

  16. Jennifer Re on October 7, 2021 at 8:29 am

    If we are planting seeds directly in the ground, do we need to include the Germination Time?

  17. TheMusicbabe101 on October 7, 2021 at 8:29 am

    I would LOVE a copy of your spread sheet with the formulas! Wow! Love it!!

  18. DINOLOVER6717 on October 7, 2021 at 8:29 am

    Im in zone 5 and I feel like Chicago frost is soooo deadly 😳 do you have any advice for those of us with the unpredictable frosts? Chicago’s frost could be anywhere from mid September to all the way in Nov 😩 it stresses me out….

  19. Mona Adams on October 7, 2021 at 8:31 am

    I love your spread sheet and board chart you showed. I knew to do that this summer but I write everything down so I got too busy to keep it up and then got lost. I forgot what some tomatoes and herbs were. 🤔 I’m going try to get it done this week. I’m just not good with that sort of thing on the computer. Thank you again

  20. Nicole Hammond on October 7, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Spent my night watching Epic Gardening and building/tweaking my spreadsheet! No better way to spend a quiet evening.

  21. Dave Dalton on October 7, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Is the goal to harvest your plants before the frost? I live in Zone 10a and use a spreadsheet from Next Level Gardening and was going to start seeds in Oct. and plant in Nov. Should I be starting seeds now so they go in the garden by Oct.

  22. YoWillGamin G on October 7, 2021 at 8:33 am

    Nice

  23. Cheryl Bibbee on October 7, 2021 at 8:34 am

  31. DJ AMARA on October 7, 2021 at 8:43 am

    Thanks! Note to self – use the calculator + use Kevin’s spreadsheet to track planting + layout of beds.

  34. Estefany on October 7, 2021 at 8:46 am

    BETTER BILLBOARD 🤷🏻‍♂️ … please 😏

  37. Deborah Cox on October 7, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Do you have a planting spreadsheet and planner you can share with me?

  38. Jenni Prado on October 7, 2021 at 8:49 am

    With the seeds you transplanted, did you start them indoors? If so, did you have to go through a hardening off process before planting them outside?

  39. orlando sullera on October 7, 2021 at 8:50 am

    When do nursery in northern California (East Bay, Fremont) start selling cabbage transplant?
