winter gardening in Missouri
I'm starting to plan my winter garden and I'm looking for 3 pieces of advice.
1) I have grown mache and arugula w/ some success. What are some varieties of other vegetables do well here? I know, for example, that spinach and kale do well but some varieties of spinach do better in winter than others.
2) I have a small yard and don't have space for a walk-in hoop house. What can you tell me about low tunnels? How long do the pipes for the hoops have to be? What kind of plastic is good?
3) I'm hoping to have some stuff (chard, carrots, beets) planted by August 1. Does that seem reasonable?
