I put broccoli, cauliflower, parsley, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, cilantro, green onions, radishes, beets, lettuces, onions, garlic, chard, plus violas, and alyssum in my beds in LATE fall/early winter. They all survived and even thrived through low 30's weather and a couple 27 degree nights! Now it's March and I'm picking fresh salad, herbs, chard MORE! Good luck!

Re: An Artichoke Among the Sages

I'm on my third year gardening in Northern CA. Sebastopol to be exact. This is the year that I will plant Emerald Artichokes, and Purple of Romagna artichoke. (Baker Creek is my best friend!) Thanks for the advice that they enjoy some cold! We had a horribly cool summer with minimal results in the garden 2010! Yuck... Hopefully with instruction from the gardeners on this site, and gopher interference I will implement; I will have success in the perennial vegetable arena. Thanks for the hints everyone, I am enjoying this site!
