Here in NorCal, we enjoy a 365 day-a-year growing season, and if you’re a transplant from a colder climate, this is something you know shouldn’t be taken for granted. Most greens relish cool temperatures and go to seed in warm weather. Give them rich soil, keep them cool and you’ll be rewarded with fresh salad greens throughout the year. Here are some tasty veggies that love to grow in the winter (and check out the Green Smoothie recipe in this newsletter!)
Kale (SO easy to grow!)
Swiss chard (These are so pretty you’ll feel sorry picking them!)
Leeks (So good in soup.)
Radishes (Impatient? These sprout super-fast!)
Potatoes (Kids love watching these babies multiply!)
Get out there and get your hands dirty!
