The Q&A Archives: Winter Vegetable Garden

Question: I would like to plant a vegetable garden for winter and am wonder what and when to plant? We are still in the 80 degree range during the day and 50 at night.

Answer: Your autumn weather sounds delightful! You can plant any of the cool-season crops; spinach, lettuce, cabbage, radishes, beans and peas. These should all produce harvestable crops during your winter months. In the spring, when the weather warms, replace the spent crops with warm-weather lovers such as tomatoes, peppers, squash and corn.
