Broccoli is one of the best vegetables that thrive well in home gardens. The vegetable is rich in minerals and vitamins. It is highly susceptible to pests and high temperatures. It flourishes well fall and spring and can do well both indoors and outdoors when planted in July or August.

Cabbage is a hearty vegetable that thrives well in cooler regions. The vegetable grows well in late fall or early spring when planted in moist soil.

Lettuce is another vegetable that is suitable for planting in fall. It is mostly used for snacking, salads and displaying. It is easy to grow and can bloom a few weeks into the frost season. With minimal sunlight and space, the vegetable grows well due to its shallow root system.

Brussels sprouts are ideal for growing in fall as they grow into delicious vegetables when they mature in cool weather.

Spinach is an excellent vegetable for planting from the beginning of fall to the end of the season. The vegetable is rich in vitamins A and C and iron. It is delicious when tossed or steamed on salads.
