(Ste. Genevieve) You may find your vegetable garden or flower garden bouncing back after receiving some much needed rain of late.

Katie Kammler is a field specialist in horticulture for the University of Missouri Extension in Ste. Genevieve County.

She says the weather has actually been pretty good this gardening season.

We asked Kammler if she’s been seeing any insects on her plants and flowers.

And now is the time to plant fall vegetables in southeast Missouri.

Some cold weather crops you can plant right now include beets, broccoli, brussell sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, carrots, cauliflower along with several others.
