From here to first frost

The typical first frost date in Toronto is October 6, which is 93 days away. If we allow two weeks for safety, that gives us 79 days of growing, minus whatever time you need to germinate.

My garden is full. Full full full full. I shouldn’t plant any more into it, because each plant needs room to grow. But if I were to plant more veggies in it, here are some candidates:

  • Radishes (maturity: 30 days), although they may go to seed
  • Beets (maturity: 40-70 days)
  • Pole beans (maturity: 60 days)
  • Bush beans (maturity: 60 days)
  • Peas (maturity: 60 days)
  • Cucumbers (maturity: 60-90 days)
  • Corn (maturity: 60-90 days)
  • Lettuce (maturity: 70-90 days)
  • Onion sets (maturity: 50-60 days)

Maybe I have time for another crop of radishes after I harvest this one. =) I’ll have a little bit of space.

    That’s right! When I look at our garden right now, I can see abundance.
    We just pulled some asian greens (tatsoy and mizuna) going to seed and planted some beets, turnips and radishes.
    My partner Bonita just wrote an article on our blog on abundance. You can check it out at
    Happy gardening to everyone!

    Don’t forget, there’s lots of vegetables that will keep on growin’ past the first frost. See

    I’m planning on having peas, kale, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower growing well past the first frost.
