If you live where it is too cold in winter to garden you need to see how to grow over 250 garden plants in winter. By choosing cold weather hardy plants and providing them with low row covers you can grow loads of greens and other types of vegetables all winter long.
In this article and videos from Mother Of A Hubbard you will see how she grows all kids of greens like kale and baby lettuces plus broccoli and bok choy. The videos even show how the kale and collards can freeze over night and rebound during the day. These didn’t even have the row covers on them. I know that kale likes frost and will taste sweeter after a frost but I didn’t know that it could freeze and come back. I don’t know that I would need or be able to use quite as much greens as she has planted but I could definitely use a couple of rows and some broccoli and bok choy.
Making the low tunnels from the row cover would be that hard and would be a lot less expensive that building a greenhouse. Would be pretty neat to go out and sweep the show off a patch of garden and end up back in the kitchen with a nice bunch of veggies for smoothies salads and sides in the dead of winter.
