Perfecting Your Winter Garden

Beautiful spring gardenLiving in the Conejo Valley allows you to enjoy mild temperatures all year long, even in the winter. Aside from a few freezing overnight temperatures, the climate in the area allows you to enjoy fresh vegetables and herbs all year round. Keep these cold weather tips in mind to ensure that your vegetable garden is always full of fresh veggies, this winter!

  • Pull out all of your summer vegetable plants that have stopped producing. They will only take up room and steal nutrients from the other plants in your garden.
  • Pick the right plants. There are many vegetables that can thrive in cooler temperatures. Beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, turnips, peas, garlic, spinach, lettuce, brussel sprouts, peppers, beans, green onions, and radishes will all help to ensure that you have the right ingredients to make all of your favorite dishes this winter.
  • Water appropriately. Make sure not to over water your plants when it is raining. It is important to make sure that you choose pots that have proper drainage holes so that the roots of the plants will not start to rot.
  • There are also many herbs that enjoy the cold weather, such as thyme, basil, Italian parsley, and rosemary. Try planting a windowsill herb garden to ensure that your herbs get the right amount of sunlight. Planting a kitchen windowsill garden will also give you easy access to all of your herbs.
