Learn how to enjoy these 4 delicious, nutritious, extra hardy salad greens straight from your garden all winter long!
As we discussed on Monday, even if you live in a moderate-to-cool climate, it may still be possible to enjoy fresh, home-grown leafy green vegetables during the winter. I don’t know about you, but for me, fresh salad greens in the winter are such a delicious treat – my body just seems to crave them. One of the most beautiful sights for me in the winter is a gorgeous bed of hardy salad greens growing underneath my little garden hoops! 🙂
Mache is one such hardy green, but there are others as well. The video below describes four salad greens that are hardy, reliable, tasty, and easy to grow. In milder climates, you may be able to grow these greens outside during the winter without any protection. In cool climates, you may need to provide a bit of cover – either a cold frame, hoop house, or row covers. In very cold climates, a blanket or two on especially cold nights may help your lovely winter salad greens survive right through to the springtime.
