So I’m not doing much gardening this winter because we decided we need a break after all the work of summer gardening. Because we live in zone 7 and we had already planted some plants (that should hopefully live through the winter) I have decided to clear out the beds which are full of dead plants and weeds. I’m going to try to keep my kale chard and onions alive if nothing else!
I was super surprised to see some of the beds were loaded with the biggest and healthiest looking dandelions I had ever seen. I decided to go ahead and harvest them. These aren’t really my favorite green (they have a bitter taste) but they were in my organic raised bed and they had even been fertilized with the boogie brew. So I decided to harvest them with the rest of my greens and not pull them out for the winter and I’m curious to see if they can handle the drop in temperature as well.
Have you ever tried winter gardening where you live? If so what has worked for you any tips?
