Cool Season Vegetables

Posted on Dec 11, 2015

For those of us in Southern California, we have the unique opportunity to grow vegetables year ’round. As Winter approaches, so does our shift to our “cool season” plants. Although it may be a bit late to start from seed for some plants, it is the perfect time to put in starts from the nursery. These include: radish, rhubarb, endive, garlic, parsley, peas, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, lettuce and spinach. For many gardeners — especially those along the coast — herbs such as sage, rosemary, oregano and thyme can be grown year ’round.
