- A word on growing Fall and Winter greens -

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. The shorter day length make them less likely to bolt compared to Spring sown greens. My most vibrant crops of salad greens are always in the Fall!

To extend 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.

White Russian Kale - Annapolis Seeds
White Russian Kale
Price: $2.00

(B. napus) - Our go-to kale. White Russian is both extremely productive and delicious. The broad green leaves stay tender even when fully grown, making it a great variety for fresh salads. One of our hardiest kales for Fall and Winter growing; with a little care they can keep on producing almost all year.

I especially love kale in the fall and winter. The cold weather makes the leaves sweeter (kale produces sugar as an anti-freezing measure), and by the end of Fall kale is often one of the few green plants still standing strong in the garden. Try making massaged kale... just tear up some leaves and “massage” them (almost as if you were kneading the kale) in a large bowl with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It makes an amazing tender salad! Approx. 250 seeds (1 g)
