Planting Cool-Weather Vegetables

This post brought to you by Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Now that the weather's getting colder, I'm wondering what I can do with my window box gardens in terms of Fall gardening. I'd love to have them in use over the colder fall and winter, but I'm not sure what can survive a north-east fall! After a quick pinterest search, I found great suggestions for vegetables that can survive the colder weather, including beets, turnips, carrots, potatoes, and squash.

The Miracle-Gro  website was also helpful in teaching me about cold-weather edibles. From their Find beauty in the Fall page, I found a lot of information on fall gardening projects. I learned, for example, that colder weather makes carrots taste better and so some of your last carrots should not be harvested until after the first overnight freeze. I would love to make this delicious, hearty soup using fall vegetables from my own garden!

From the Miracle-Gro website, I learned that their Organic Choice Garden Soil is made of 100% organic ingredients and is recommended for all of the north-east cold-weather plants listed on their website. This organic garden soil delivers almost double the yields of topsoil by infusing the soil with nutrients that the plants need throughout the season.
