Hello from Mid-Tennessee

Post  NHGirlinaTNworld on 10/2/2017, 2:29 pm

I've been here three years, still trying to wrap my head around a garden that goes past Labor Day (coming from New England, after all).

Today I added compost to my SFG and planted broccoli, carrots, spinach, and peas. I'm thinking of getting the pop-up critter blocker and covering it with a sheet on cool days to extend my growing season. I got a cool (and cheap) plastic covered dome last spring but the wind tore it to shreds.

Hi TN Girl, Welcome to the Forum! glad you\'re here A winter garden does not need to be covered unless the temps drop below 28*F. Many plants also survive a little snow. Just have the frames ready for if and when you need to cover. And, uncover on sunny days for sure or the plants will fry! Embarassed

Howdy, TN Girl!  I lived in Nashville for 6 years!  It does get cold there in short bursts.  You should give it a try, all you have to lose are some fairly inexpensive seeds!  

What do you like to eat?  (Not tomatoes for winter!)

happy hi and  glad you\'re here from Redding, CA. I also garden all winter. I found that kale and carrots can survive mild winters outside. I bring everything else inside and struggle to keep them going under lights.

Hi NHGirlinaTNworld...  Great username!  (we used to call them 'handles' back in my day. Very Happy )  Photos are always welcome.

Lucky you to be able to keep things going longer.  When is your new-to-you first frost date?
