Part 3: Growing Food In central Texas, climate zones 8 and 9, I can grow some food in the winter such as brassicas, the cabbage family, including kale, broccoli, collard greens and cabbage, but I really just get the broccoli greens, not big florets. Brussels sprouts need more sunlight, and head cabbage needs more sunlight than we get in winter. To produce mass takes a lot of sunlight, but producing leaves does not take as much. (Adjust your hopes and aspirations to the realities of photosynthesis.) Onions and garlic do well over winter, planting in the fall, but they have a long season, and most of their growth happens when it is sunnier and warmer. Lettuces, radishes and beets (including spinach and Swiss chard) also produce well in winter in climate zones 8 and 9.
*BLACK BOX WARNING* to new gardeners like myself!
With all the exhortations to "get growing" in the alt health and truth communities, it is easy to get started in haste, as I did, and end up committing a critical, expensive, time and effort killing error.
*PLEASE* be extraordinarily careful about your soil source, whatever amendments you add, and here is why: AMINOPYRALIDS
Having weaponized the air, food, water, soil is certainly also in the crosshairs of the psychopaths.
This is great info for a so far unsuccessful vegetable garden grower! Thank you all!
