RE: Planning Winter Garden (greenhouse)

The Old Farmer's Almanac has an online garden planner that is free for 30 days.. requires no credit card. It is worth a try.

I think all of those would do well in containers indoors, except the asparagus. It is not best suited to container growing and has a shorter, less productive lifespan than in the ground. It certainly will grow in a container, but just know that it might not be as long lasting as it would be outside. Also while it can be grown indoors, it certainly does better with a cold season.

Here is a link that might be useful: Farmers Almanac Garden Planner
