This article teaches you how to extend your gardening season to the whole winter and enjoy fresh garden vegetables even if there is snow on the ground.
As with all gardening, your results will vary depending on your tough zone, so be sure to know your results.
Regardless of your region, these technologies and concepts will help you expand your growth (and eating! )season.
Winter gardening is to eat fresh food in the garden in the winter, not to grow food in the winter.
Due to the shorter weather, cooler air and soil temperatures, the crops do not grow much in winter, but in autumn.
In order to have a successful winter garden and grow enough cold strong plants in autumn, you can stay in the ground and harvest the whole winter.
Imagine your winter garden as a big refrigerator that you don't have to pay!
You can usually grow green leaf crops when the weather is cool (

Some crops are colder in cool weather (
How cold they are)than others.
If your goal is to harvest in winter, be sure to choose both cold plants and cold plant varieties.
Here's a quick list of cold hard plants I 've seen experiencing frost, ice, and even snow on the ground: Kale (
After freezing, the taste of collards is actually better because the cold temperature converts the starch in the leaves into sugar)

Covering the soil with carbon sources helps to protect the soil and prevent temporary freezing of the soil.
Use it as a blanket of your plants (
But don't cover them! ).
Covering also helps to keep moisture and inhibit weed growth, and you absorb nutrients and organic matter when it's your turn to soil.
Here are some good sources of covering: Leaves (
Autumn is free and rich, becoming a leaf thief, and also taking bags from neighbors)straw (
More popular than hay because there are fewer weed seeds in it)hay (
The top of the grass is cut, so it has seeds inside it that can sprout in spring)
Part of the compost (
The technique also adds nutrients, but if the weather is still hot, it can damage the plant as it continues to break down)
Broken paper season extensions.
These tools will help you adjust the temperature of your crop, which will allow your crop to survive longer in cold weather and may keep some crops growing while they are usually dormant. Cold frames -
These are just wooden planter boxes with glass covers and you can open the ventilation.
Keep them ventilated during the day.
Cover at night.
When you start growing plants, cold frames can be used as mini greenhouses, or they can accommodate plants in the life of plants.
Many gardeners have succeeded in growing lettuce in cold conditions throughout the winter. Row covers -
Thin fabric or plastic wrapped gently on a plant like a blanket.
Some plants have rows that fit right on the plants and do a good job. other more sophisticated plants prefer to support the rows with thin metal pipes or PVC pipes.
The row cover does not prevent the temperature from being as cold as the outside of the row cover.
All they do is slow the temperature down.
Usually, it is not the cold temperature that destroys the plant, but the temperature that often occurs when the sun goes down in winter. Greenhouses -
The greenhouse is a small room with glass or plastic sides and the roof allows the light to come in.
They let the sun in and keep the heat, which will help keep the plant alive in the winter and possibly grow in the winter.
Some greenhouses have heaters, and as long as the temperature is carefully adjusted, gardeners can grow almost any crop they want.
Greenhouses are also commonly used to start planting plants in early spring and then transplant them underground.
Have a good start in spring.
Some plants like spinach grow enough to mature in the fall, and then sleep in the winter (
You can still reap if you want)
Then they began to grow again in spring.
Because these plants built up in the fall already have healthy roots, they really take off when it starts to warm.
In this way, you can eat very early spinach.
Cover crops to build soil.
Consider using part of winter gardening for planting covered crops (
Green dung again)
This will protect your soil and build fertile soil for next spring and summer.

Another way to build your fertility next year is to spread compost in late autumn and winter.
Flatbed compost, also known as lasgna compost, is actually building a very low scattered compost pile in your garden that will break down and feed your soil.
At the beginning, the food residue or other nitrogen (
Coffee grounds, farm animal feces, etc)
In your garden area.
Then, add a thick layer of leaves (
There are many autumn
Give it a good water soak.
Add a layer of food residue, leaves and water to it if you want.

Winter "gardening "-
Use the rest time to take care of your tools and plan your spring/summer garden.
Another way to keep gardening hobbies in winter is to use the natural rhythm to do some gardening-related work that does not involve digging soil.
Cleaning, sharpening and other maintenance are required for all tools.
Why not finish the work when it's cold outside so you can get ready for spring. You can also use winter time to read the seed catalogue, plan your garden and Dream of Spring.
