Depends on your climate. Ours is moderate in winter mostly and we grow
winter crops. Stuff like cabbage, spinach, lettuce, carrots, beets, etc.
Right now we still have eggplant, cucumbers, and tomatoes still
producing. First frost can't be far off now.
Monday, I am suppose to get down to 29F. It will
kill everything in my garden except the Garlic.
Any suggestions as to my winder climate: Norther Nevada?
Winter days 40's to 50's Nights 20 to 30. Extreme
nights to zero.
Cherokee on Mother's side, Choctaw on Dad's, none of us were ever
registered with a tribe. Each parent was half white, half Native
American. Both Mom's parents were half Cherokee/half white, Dad's dad
was full blood Choctaw, married to a white woman, a blond at that. Never
made any difference to us, we're just full blood Americans.
Texican is the old word for Texan, born in Texas, most likely will die
here. Worked in two different Arab Gulf countries, lived and worked in
several states, pure D oil field trash, third generation.
We've been sitting on the front porch, handing out Halloween candy, dawg
tried to defend the candy basket so put her back in the house.
Rain stopped earlier today, thank goodness, lots of folks south of us
got flooded, hit by high winds and tornadoes. Glad we picked this end of
Harris Cty, Texas to move to. Plus we're nearly three hours closer to
our kids, grands, and great grands but I do miss rural Louisiana and the
slow pace there. Not to mention the excellent fishing, fresh and salt
water, all within a thirty minute drive.
It's raining here again, wife is off to Art in the Park at noon, if the
rain stops she will be displaying her watercolors in hope of selling
them. I will be curled up with a warm dawg and a nice sci fi book.
Here in western Washington state I overwinter with rye grass and hairy vetch.
Not 'common' vetch - it is considerably less tolerant of cold. I'm not sure
if any would survive 0degF, maybe with a protective cover/mulch.
around here winter wheat and winter rye are
both good winter crops to turn under in the
spring. the garlic is planted, but i've vastly
downsized my planting this year for next
most of what i'll be doing the next few weeks
for planting will be digging in some leaves.
