Just curious, what is everyone planning to grow for winter crops this year?
Also, does anyone keep veggies under the snow and eat them later?
Does anyone do greenhouse veggies all winter?
Hope I don't sound a bit dense, but I'm 3rd generation Californian and I really don't know.

Hi! I just sprouted some new broccoli plants, more for fall than winter I guess. I also planted new carrots, which I plan to attempt to leave in the ground for winter use, I just [Love] LOVE [Love] the idea of doing that!!! Same with turnips, they are due to be planted a little later on in the month.

After having amazing success growing seedlings under flourescents in my basement, I might try doing lettuce like that this winter. And the greenhouse idea is interesting to me too. I have a sunny south facing side of my house that would probably be perfect for a cold frame of some sort!

i've actually had a little luck with radishes this year, not perfect size/shape but still there, and not that many, either!!
