The cultivation of winter vegetables


Many think that only with mild temperatures is it possible to have a home vegetable garden, in the garden or on the terrace of the house. Even in winter we can devote ourselves to domestic cultivation; in fact, there are many vegetables that are able to withstand low temperatures, poor light duration and climate change.

In this regard we will show you which are the winter vegetables easily cultivated in our green space.

Winter vegetables, which ones to grow
Among the winter vegetables we have pumpkin, chard, cauliflower, onion, leek, radishes, spinach ... in short, a nice minestrone
Even beans, if we choose the more resistant ones, can be planted in the colder months to have a good harvest in spring; the important thing is to take care to arrange support rods to allow the seedlings to grow upwards.

Peas can be sown in January, so we will have a first harvest in spring and then sow them in March so as to have a second harvest in summer. More info can be found in the article "How to grow peas"
Garlic grows easily, both in the pot and in the garden; just put a few cloves underground. For more info read "How to sow garlic in the vegetable garden"

We can grow onions and shallots, among other things useful for defending the most delicate plants from parasites.
Another vegetable that can be easily sown in winter is lettuce; in this way we will be able to enjoy a first harvest in spring then the second in summer. Obviously, we can move the garden directly into the house to protect the vegetables from peaks of cold.
If you have the opportunity to create a good cover for our winter sowing, we can also sow strawberries. For cultivation, here's how to proceed:

  1. Get large rectangular terracotta pots
  2. Fill them with acidic compost and add a layer of fresh manure
  3. At the time of implantation, space the seedlings about 10 centimeters from each other.
  4. The seedlings should be watered regularly and with a certain delicacy, taking care to avoid stagnation of water.

Even cherry tomatoes do not require special cultivation practices. Among the different varieties of cherry tomatoes we have the gold star, a slightly oval-shaped tomato with a golden yellow color. Due to its type of growth it is advisable to cultivate it in the ground or in a large pot with a stake. For more information on how to grow cherry tomatoes, please refer to the article "Cherry tomatoes, growing in the garden and in pots"

Those who do not have a green thumb and have a terrace can approach small crops with aromatic plants since they do not require special cultivation practices. The best thing could be to make a small collection of aromatics. In this regard, we refer you to reading the article "Aromatics in pots or in the garden, all the info"
