Winter Gardens

chezterrOctober 23, 2012

Just wanted to check in to see what everyone else had planned for their winter gardens this year in CA.

I'm located in the high desert, so it does frost/freeze where I am at. I have a 6x8 greenhouse that I am growing 6 tomato plants in, along with carrots and hot/bell peppers (in 2x7 raised beds)

My 7x7 raised bed outside will have spinach, various kinds of lettuce, garlic, shallots and broccoli.

I'll try to snap some pictures of the greenhouse soon and add them to this thread.

Curious to see what everyone else is doing! :-)

I planted spinach and lettuce. I'm going to do more spinach and some radishes.

My only winter veggie will be lettuce - but I'll have lots of flowers while Mother Nature does most of the watering. No frost here on the coast. Fall bulbs are starting to bloom; others are sprouting after the recent rain, along with wildflowers and Johnny Jumpups. Next weekend I'll be putting 240 Ranunculus bulbs in the ground and 300 tulips in the fridge. I have more wildflower seedlings started in flats to plant out next month. I'll be buying primroses and a few other annuals as soon as my local nursery has them.

I just planted broccoli and Swiss chard, but I'm in an almost frost-free zone. Bok choy grows really fast, so I can probably squeeze in a crop this fall. Lettuce is in a clay pot - easier to protect from insects and snails.
