Salad Greens

- A word on growing Fall and Winter greens -

July, August and into September are the perfect times to sow hardy greens for Fall and Winter harvests. Kales, mizuna, mustard greens, tatsoi, chard and spinach are especially good ones for Fall growing. Many greens actually do better in Fall than they do in Spring... they appreciate the cool weather and reduced flea beetle pressure. The shorter day length make them less likely to bolt compared to Spring sown greens. My most vibrant crops of salad greens are always in the Fall!

To extend the harvest season further into Winter, it's simply a matter of covering up your hardy greens as cold weather arrives. A whole variety of protection techniques will do the trick, whether a glass cold frame, some kind of greenhouse or simple poly sheets over hoops. The plants won't actively grow very much over the Winter, but they'll stay in great shape for harvesting until the very coldest of Winter weather arrives.
