I may give spinach a whirl. Here we are expecting a storm Sunday and it will likely be snow followed by cold. I don't expect any seed to germinate and grow this fall, but wondered if it would survive winter to grow in the early spring if planted now? Spinach may be worth a try?
The climate here is severe from November through February. There will be nothing growing. It takes a hardy plant of any kind to survive our winters. It is borderline for peach trees. Some individuals make it but many die. I have seen the temperature go below zero and stay there for a week at a time. Not even getting above zero in the daytime in full sun. Twenty below at night.
Fall planted potatoes usually die. If the ground freezes, it will kill potatoes.
Our water lines are all at least 3 feet deep to protect from freezing.
You folks in Arizona and Tennessee, don't know what winter is..........
Thanks for the ideas. I won't hurt me to plant a few seeds of all the cool weather crops and see what if any make It.
