I live in southeast Louisiana and we are having a fairly mild winter being that it only gets cold (45 Degrees) a few days at a time with an occasional 34 Deg.over night. If not, what other things can I grow now? I have Garlic in the ground and it seems to be doing well. just looking for a little advice if anyone is willing to share.
I live in N.O. and have Kale, Swiss Chard, Collard Greens, Broccoli, Beets, Garlic, Onions, Radicchio, and several varieties of leaf lettuce. I also have peppers and Tomatoes(started in Sept.--- too cold now to put them in. You can start those in cells now for transplanting in early March if you have the room. Just make sure they stay evenly heated, well watered when needed and get lots of light. You may want to start these indoors since Feb. us usually a strange weather month for us. We never know if it is going to be short sleeve or heavy coat weather for Mardi Gras.
