Schlafly Bottleworks has its own garden, and two gardeners to take care of it.
St. Louis Magazine got some advice from Jack Petrovic and Nolan Kowalski on fall vegetable gardening:
Jack: The fall crops are the best. When things cool off, they just taste better. Even foods like collards, broccoli and kale, foods most people don’t like, actually sweeten up after a frost. Most of the destructive insects are leaving by now also.
Nolan: As the heat of summer decreases, combined with some steady rains, the conditions for cool-season crops continuously gets better. As opposed to continuously gets hotter and drier, as it does in spring.
