How do I extend my garden's harvest time?

Succession Planting

Succession planting ensures that your vegetable garden is brimming with a harvest the entire growing season. After you harvest one vegetable, you can replant one or more different vegetable seeds in its place. Here are a few succession planting ideas for you.

After you have harvested your leaf lettuce, you can plant squash or bush beans.

When your radish crop is nearing completion, you can replant the area with your cucumber seeds.

Follow up your cabbage crop by planting snap beans. When your snap beans are harvested, you can use the area a third time by planting your fall lettuce.
