GardenersCardiff answers:

The fall/winter garden is much the same as a spring/summer garden. Fertilizing and water requirements will be about the same. The only real difference is the type of veggies you plant. They need to be for a cool climate and tolerant of lower temperatures. Most members of the brassica family do well as cool-season veggies. I have just planted collards, kale (2 varieties), oriental cabbage (2 varieties), Brussels sprouts (2 varieties), kohlrabi, beets (not a brassica, but still a cool-weather crop), rutabagas and turnips in zone 8, N.W. Florida. In zone 7 you should probably hurry if you want them do get a good start; they are cool-weather crops but they still need some warmth to sprout and time to grow before cooler temps get here.

Last year I had cauliflower, cabbage, carrots and 3 varieties of lettuce planted as well as what is listed above, except the beets and kale. I didn’t grow them last year.

Good luck and enjoy!
