Gardening in the Winter

The folks at Good Food Project sometimes hear comments about not having much to do during the winter months, “there’s not much to grow, right?” Well, no, there’s lots to grow! In fact, we love growing vegetables in the cooler months!

With proper planning and preparation many of us gardeners planted our winter crops back in August through October and are already harvesting tender broccoli, fresh cabbage and lettuces. It’s not too late, even now, to get seeded crops or transplants into the ground if you have well-prepared beds or containers.

Look for those warmer days in the south during December and January and you can still plant beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, snow peas, and a vast array of nutritious vegetables! (See a full list below) Those cool weather crops like warm soil in the beginning, but need cooler temperatures in order to develop and mature.
