- A word on growing Fall and Winter greens -
Even though it may seem too early;
July, August and into September are the perfect times to sow hardy
greens for Fall and Winter harvests. Kales, mizuna, mustard greens,
tatsoi, chard and spinach are especially good ones for Fall growing.
Many greens actually do better in Fall than they do in Spring... they
appreciate the cool weather and reduced flea beetle pressure. They're
also much less prone to bolting compared to Spring sown greens. My most
vibrant crops of salad greens are almost always in the Fall!
the harvest season further into Winter, it's simply a matter of covering
up your hardy greens as cold weather arrives. A whole variety of
protection techniques will do the trick, whether a glass cold frame,
some kind of greenhouse or simple poly sheets over hoops. The plants
won't actively grow very much over the Winter, but they'll stay in great
shape for harvesting until the very coldest of Winter weather arrives.
Corn Salad, Claytonia and Russian Kales are usually my very hardiest
greens for Winter.
