Vegetables to Grow In Winter: Cold Weather Vegetables

Plant Broccoli, Cabbage or Kale:
  • Prepare the bed by removing old plants and weeds.
  • Loosen the soil with a spading fork.
  • Mix in a balanced garden fertilizer. Follow directions for how much to apply.
  • Dig holes 6” deep, 6” wide and 18” apart.
  • Sprinkle 3” of compost in the bottom of each hole.
  • Water seedlings before removing from containers.
  • Plant seedlings, setting them slightly deeper than they grew in the container. Firmly press the plants into place.
  • Water thoroughly.
  • Mulch with organic material.


Caterpillars love cabbage. Treat veggies every 10 days with an organic pesticide to prevent damage.
