Many vegetables thrive in the cold, and can continue to grow throughout the fall and winter seasons! Most people start slowing down their gardens around this time of year. If you choose to do so, you can keep growing! I live in zone 6a New England, and I grow in a raised garden bed. I also mulch the vegetables in and cover my crops with frost blankets and a homemade hoop house to extend my growing season. This protects the vegetables from wind and damaging winter weather. If you plant seeds before the ground freezes and implement some protective measures, you are good to go!
