Vegetables can be sown in the spring and harvested all the way through the fall and into the middle of winter. After that, you can continue on with your garden throughout the rest of the year by planting additional vegetables for winter harvesting or overwintering.
Below are seasonal planting guides for vegetables that can be grown and eaten throughout the year:
Planting winter greens and other crops in the summer is still possible. Even though most plants in temperate climates go dormant during the coldest part of the year, those that are sown in the summer have a good chance of growing to a respectable size before the first frosts.
If the plants are given enough warmth and protection from the frost, they will live through the winter and can be harvested gently all the way into spring.
Consider planting these summertime vegetables:
- Asian greens (pak choi/ mizuna/ or mibuna/ etc.)
- Winter lettuces
- Spring onions
