ST. CLOUD – Autumn is just around the corner, and vegetable gardeners are starting to gear up for harvest time.

Cindy Tong, Associate Professor of Horticulture at the University of Minnesota, says there are ways for gardeners facing a surplus of vegetables to keepĀ  them alive and in the ground for a longer period of time, called “over-wintering.”

Tong says this method works well with heartier vegetables like carrots, spinach and kale.

Tong reports many gardeners are still in the thick of growing season due to mild late summer weather, though crops like tomatoes and cucumbers are slowing down as opposed to fall crops like squash.
