With autumn’s arrival, Anza gardens harvest a bounty of fruits and vegetables. Favorite and easy-to-grow vegetable varieties include zucchini, squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, beans, tomatoes, peppers and greens such as lettuce and spinach. Most Anza gardeners prefer organic methods, using manures, teas and compost to provide nourishment for their plants.
