As we approach the end of summer, it is time to start thinking about fall crops.
While most fruits and vegetables require too long to mature, there are many that you can plant now and still get in at least one harvest before any hard frost, or, if you live in an area that does not get frost, reap the harvest (or a few) before the holidays.
Learning what crops are hearty and require a shorter maturation period is one skill that you would definitely need if you were forced to grow your own food because of a survival situation.
Maximizing growing space (while still taking time to let the ground recoup) is critical to ensuring you have food to eat through Winter as well as if you were facing a prolonged period where you had to provide your own food.
