Fall gardening is alive and well in Maryland. Some cool weather vegetables you plant to harvest in the fall and others you plant to over-winter and be ready come spring. On September 26th I did a video on planting garlic, onion seeds and leeks. His is the progress about 3 weeks later.

The vegetables will do their thing over the winter and be ready in various stages for spring and late spring harvesting.

Notice the onions and leeks look almost the same. They are related. Onions make the round bulb you are familiar with and leeks grow more like cylindrical stalks. Both great additions to the garden. And you can start them in the fall.
