Planting Your Fall and Winter Garden … Do It Now!

Don’t wait on me! Plant your Fall and winter garden NOW!

It’s not too late to plant your Fall and Winter garden. Many garden crops can still be directly seeded in your garden. Others will need some protection from freezing temperatures, winter winds, ice and snow.

Winter protection can be provided by green houses, hot beds, cold frames or you can grow many cold weather crops in doors as potted plants.

Herbs are a good choice for indoor potted plants.

Peppers are Perennials. That special pepper plant can be dug, potted and over wintered indoors.

  5. I’m often jealous of all you southern folk and your ability to winter garden. The only thing that will grow up here in winter are snowballs.
