There are several crops that will do just fine in our climate this winter. Though we do recommend planting soon! Try these delicious garden favorites for a winter (or early spring) snack:
Cruciferous vegetables: plants in the cabbage family, like broccoli, kale and cauliflower, thrive quite well in mild winter temperatures. Plant them 18 inches apart to allow for full growth.
Root crops: Plant a few rows of your favorite root crop this fall for a late winter harvest. Carrots, beets, turnips and rutabagas are great options for the winter garden.
Leafy greens: Plant a winter salad! Arugula, spinach, lettuce and mustard greens can handle cooler temperatures. Just watch out for slugs and snails- they love cool, damp temperatures too.
