    Default how much gardening will you do

    during winter? Here in Australia, winter is one of our best gardening seasons. Everything continues growing, although the growing does slow. It's a good time to plant annuals, perennials and trees. It's also cool enough to do the hard work without getting too hot.

    What will you do in your garden during winter? Or have you already put it to bed until spring?

    Ground is frozen & we'll have to wait for spring. I could prob do something in the cold frame if I kept it mulchedand covered at night.

    No gardening here. Everything will soon be covered in a thick layer of snow and ice. I do try to grow a few things inside in the winter.

    During winter in our zone we can plant......... broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, onions, parsley, english peas, radishes, peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, potatoes, bush beans, lima beans, sweet corn, cucumbers, pumpkins, summer squash, cantaloupes. I have quite a bit to plant, but a lot of garden mess from the hurricanes to still clean up and relocate. I'm still pretty bummed about all that got destroyed and am having a hard time getting in gear again.

    Nadda around these parts. It's brown, we'll have hard freezes often now. Oh man Kim, what I would give to be able to plant tomatoes right now.

    Usually our growing season ends in October sometime. We've had several hard frosts so far, but the past week or two our temps have been fairly mild (in the 50s).

    Over the winter, I'll be trying winter sowing for the first time. Looking forward to that so it can help me get through the cold season.

    I have my grow room all set up and I will start my seedlings in January - we have a pretty short growing season here usually so you either have to buy bigger plants or start them indoors. I am determined to get a sugar Baby watermelon this year!!

    People here have winter crops in and can grow really up to about mid nov. We can't really start much till late April unless you have a cold frame or greenhouse or something.

    My cold frame is a huge flop at the moment. It's just been too cold.
