Winter gardening time?

United States

The weather has been getting colder and I am preparing to plant some mustard greens, turnip greens, radishes, and leaf lettuce among other things. I like the winter garden because in Texas we are able to grow a bit longer here. Collard greens are my favorite because of their hardiness in the cold.

Too bad for you. Have you tried any indoor gardening like in containers?

Yeah, I can relate to that. There is just something about a garden that makes you feel good. Maybe one day soon.

There is nothing like seeing something grow from your efforts. It is second only to watching a child grow.

I like collard greens too. All those types of 'greens' are good for us. Iron and other minerals.

You may not believe this but I grow them, have been for umpteen years, but I cannot eat them. I grow them in memory of my father.

@mrdprince ...Well, pick them, package them and send them along. I will eat them in his memory. They are very good for you.

I can plant garlic, because it will over-winter. But my gardening is done for this season except my broccoli hanging in there.

I've been doing some spring/summer gardening. I'm at the Southern Hemisphere.

Sounds great but I must admit to being a fine weather gardener, I lose interest in the cold and damp...
