Hi,
I need to plant new seeds.  Zone 4a in central WI with frost dates of Sept 20-26 (?).

Help.

Chard?
Spinach?
Lettuce?
Are those acceptable?
What else?

Hi!  Yes, all those will be great fall crops!  If you like them, radishes do really well.  Also turnips--I like the Asian varieties.  I will send a link to a great site but there are TONS!  These turnips are crispy and lighter tasting.

Also, if you like garlic, Halloween is a good time to plant that!  Hardneck does best up here.  

Welcome!

I but Tokyo Cross from here, but there are many quick to mature asian varieties.  

Cool thing about hardneck is you get scapes!  They are delectable.

Would love to see you on the N&C Midwest forum!

Succession seed sowing now Empty WI seed sources

Hi, garlicsalt - Don't know where you are, but there is a Wisconsin source of certified organic seeds North of Eau Claire, in zone 4a. The founders are no longer operating the farm there (health issues) but it is still their retail operation. They have seeds of native species, heritage and open-pollinated varieties, a blog with a wide variety of topics, and more. Although I have not purchased from them (yet!) the website looks excellent, they have been around since 1996 (then as Jubilee Nursery) and I have heard of the founder, Steve Sykora.
 
I'm in Green County, and we are planting carrots, beets, radishes, Chinese Cabbages, kale, etc. Many carrots can be overwintered. Look for anything that has days to maturation of less than 70.  You can extend your season by creating tunnels or tents over your plantings.  We do that routinely to give many of our crops more time to mature & feed us fresh.  

High Mowing Organics (VT) and Johnny's Select Seeds (ME) are both excellent sources of seeds and information. Closer to home are Nature & Nurture in Michigan, and Prairie Road Organics in ND.  These latter two specialize in varieties adapted to the Upper Midwest. For Garlic, Keene Garlic is the go-to source.
