I live in a beach town in Southern California (zone 24). What vegetables could I plant now to harvest in January?

Your weather is reasonably warm in the winter, so you can grow veggies all year long (lucky you!), and not worry much about frost. Choose plants that don't need long, hot days to mature. Try any of the leafy veggies; lettuce, cabbage, kale. Onions, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, spinach, beets, and carrots will perform well in your seaside garden, as well.Steer clear of warm-season veggies like corn, tomatoes and melons, because they'll just sulk. Give your favorite veggies a try; you'll be pleasantly surprised what you can harvest in a few short months.
