Greens to Plant for Cold Weather Gardening

Gardening doesn’t just begin in the spring and end in the autumn. We can have plenty of plants growing well into the winter, too. And those plants, such as greens, like to germinate when the weather isn’t too warm. You won’t even need a greenhouse.

Greens are one of the healthiest foods on the planet, providing a host of vitamins and minerals. There are a lot of greens to choose from for cold weather gardens. Some even improve with taste after they’ve endured a frost.

Consider these when thinking about winter gardening: Collard Greens, Kale, Spinach, Arugula, Chard, and Cabbage. While most popular culinary herbs close up shop for winter, parsley prefers the cold. It can add some fresh flavor atop soups and stews, and it makes very tasty spreads, and can also zip up a salad.
