Cool mornings and warm afternoons. Supple grass and crisp leaves. Planting and harvesting. Fall, the season of contrast, is upon us, and we’re delighted to showcase it in the latest issue of Gardening How-To. Have you ever grown amaranth? This plant’s valued for its beauty (the tri-colored one on the cover is stunning) as well as its taste (the leaves and seed heads are edible). Fall is a good time to plant many varieties of trees, but you’ll want to read our tips for the most up-to-date advice on technique. Fall is also harvest time, and sweet potatoes top our list of favorite autumn vegetables. Read about choosing the best varieties as well as how to grow and dig them. There’s more, of course. But we don’t want to spoil the surprise!
