Planning a Winter & Spring Garden for The Pacific Northwest

I know its hard to shift your thoughts to winter when its just starting to feel like summer …

June 2016 001

but if you would like to have fresh veggies in the garden all winter, its time to get your seeds purchased, organized and  started!

This next week is the time to seed Brussel sprouts and Cabbages that require a long growing season, like January King or Late Red.

Mid -late June is the best for overwintering Cauliflower and Purple Sprouting Broccoli. The first week in July is when you can seed your last crop of carrots and beets , this is also a good time for kale & chard. In August,  seed fall and winter lettuce, Chinese cabbages and other spinach and  frost hardy lettuce.

Ok, I’m heading out to the greenhouse to get a few of these going….

  1. Wondering why there isn’t more BC produce at the stores here during the winter months in the frozen prairie wastelands???

    1. I don’t know why a lot of local farmers aren’t growing more winter veggies, but what we do have, you would think it would make it to AB?
