Is it too late to start a winter garden in Illinois?

mawdukes(zone 5)October 7, 2008

I am planning a winter vegetable garden but have no idea if it is feasible in this climate as I am new to the region. What veggies do I plant and is it too late? Mayday,Mayday...I need help!!

No such thing as a 'winter garden' in Zone 5. All you can plant at this time of year are bulbs --- no veggies.
