o Winter Sown Vegetables

 


Corn, Beans, and Squash

Winter Sowing is fabulous for starting veggies. I've always had problems with direct sowing veggie seeds....the seeds get eaten by birds or critters, or they either dessicate or rot in the soil, or bugs eat them, or there's insufficient germination (for whatever else reason) so I tried doing veggies last year and it WORKS!!!!

Some good choices are:

Allium family (onions, shallots, garlic, chives)

Artichokes (zone seven and warmer)

Beans

Beets

Brassica family (cabbage, broccoli, kale, collards, etc)

Carrots

Celery

Celeriac

Chards

Corn (select an "early" type as it can germinate at lower temps)

Curcubit family (cukes, squash, pumpkins, melons, gourds)

Herbs (edible and ornamental)

Lettuces

Nightshade family (eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes - from real seeds....not "seed potatoes" ;-)

Oriental veggies (any)

Parsnip

Peas

Radishes

Spinach
