Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen, and in this segment we are going to talk about how to plant a winter vegetable garden. Now you can plant a vegetable garden pretty much year round if you live in a warm climate. If you live in a colder climate you can plant things through the winter, especially if you cover them with plastic or you have a green house. There is lots of vegetables you can plant that you can harvest through the winter. Now things like spinach, and broccoli, and different types of lettuce actually do better when it is a little bit cooler out. So if you plant them in September, October then they are going to come up, and you can harvest through October, November, December even. Especially if you just cover them with plastic you can make a minny green house, and even if you have a raised bed outside or even a container on your deck you can enjoy your vegetables for lots of months even through the winter. Now kale is another vegetable that is really easy to grow. So you can start the seeds pretty much year round, but for a vegetable garden through the winter time start them in September, October, and then that way you can enjoy your vegetables through the winter.
