I was recently interviewed about my edible garden. As parts of the interview were edited to fit it into a quick story, I have decided to publish the whole interview on my blog. Over the next view weeks I will take you through a quick gardening 101. Last week we sowed seeds for the Summer garden.. You read about that here. Today it’s time to plant some seeds for the Winter garden.! 

Q:What are some great Winter veggies?

For the beginner gardener, winter can be a daunting season, but it is actually a really easy season to grow food. You don’t have the issue of hot and dry days, where the sun is roasting your pumpkins. You also do not need to worry about watering as much as there is no heat to cause major evaporation. I love winter!

Easy winter veggies include:

  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Peas
  • Cabbage
  • Radish
  • Beetroot

All these plants are great for beginners and you can start sowing seeds in January/February. That way you will get a head start and have food all winter.
