overwinter bi-annual

Postby farmgal » Tue Apr 05, 2016 1:16 am

So for those of us that have winter, how are you doing finding bi-annuals that will overwinter in your area, I am zone 5 an so far this spring, my scotch curly kale once again for win, for the second time brussel sprouts, carrots and cabbage, why does it have to be purple cabbage that overwinters, I want to find a nice green one.. but I have a girlfriend that has a f-3 cross that is a mix doing well

So what have you overwintered this past winter, did you use a cold frame or regular garden, covered with what, for the cabbages, the rose cones work great.

I left some carrots in place in the fall of 2014, some of them came up in the spring of 2016.
Unfortunately, I goofed on the seed saving and tried to harvest seed too soon.
Since I am doing carrots again this year, I'll be trying again.

I must have left a few garlic bulbs in by mistake because I see that they are coming up! :lol:
