Top 13 Cool Weather Vegetables and How to Grow Them

You should always be on guard for your vegetable garden especially during this winter. Plants that aren’t suitable for this type of season can easily get damaged, so you have to be extra careful and apply the necessary preparations.

One thing to keep in mind when you’re planting vegetables is to know the best times to grow them. Some crops thrive in warm and hot conditions while some do well in a cool environment. For example, kale is best planted during the cooler months because the weather actually improves its texture and flavor.

There are other hardy vegetables that you can grow in cool weather: beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce and radishes are some of the most popular choices by home gardeners. All of these vegetables have varying growing specifications, though. For instance, beets and radishes can resist temperatures below the freezing point, while broccoli and cauliflower are more suited for light frost.
