TIP: Consider extending your season, by using a row cover (Reemay or Agribon are good types. I usually have to cut mine since my space is small), or by making a simple cold frame. The average frost date for Fredericksburg is around October 25. Many greens can handle and even taste better after a frost, and lettuces often take light frosts, but they can use some protection once the real colds hit, below 30 or so. Happy Fall!
Best wishes and thanks!
