Did you know that the fall and winter seasons of Houston make for some the easiest times to grow vegetables? You will learn when and where to plant, soil preparation, seed germination and transplanting a long list of vegetables, including lettuce, kale, chard, cabbage, collards, bok choy, mustard, carrot, beet, rutabaga, potato, turnip, parsnip, radish, celeriac, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, snow pea, onion, multiplying onion, leek, and garlic. Don’t have space for a garden? Many of these can be grown in containers on a patio!
