As it gets colder and the days shorten up, I look at my garden and wonder what else I can hope to get out of it this year. I am slightly addicted to eating fresh from the garden, so when I saw this in Mother Earth Living, I got excited again!
If you’ve already done the work of digging and prepping garden beds for spring and summer, why not make use of that space for nutritious veggies this fall? With a little effort, you can harvest garden goodies well into winter—even in snow!
What You Can Grow: Cold-Weather Vegetables
Most garden greens and plenty of hardy veggies will thrive in cold weather, and many are actually sweetened by autumn’s dipping temperatures. Some cold-hardy plants, such as kale, mâche and spinach, will still be sending out tender, new leaves when it’s snowing outside. Root crops such as beets and carrots store well throughout the winter, providing four seasons of fresh flavor.
