Winter Gardening Tricks And Secrets

With summer and fall weather behind us, most gardeners have placed their tools in storage for the winter. But for many other homesteaders and off-gridders, gardening season never ends — not even when it’s frigid outside.

On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we talk all about winter gardening with Darren Snyder, a master gardener, cooperative extension services agent and agriculture professor within the University of Alaska-Fairbanks system.

Even if there’s snow on the ground and the wind is howling you can still grow vegetables, either outdoors or indoors, Snyder says.

He also tells us:

  • Which cold-hardy vegetables are best to plant for winter-type weather.
  • What methods you should employ to protect plants from freezing temperatures.
  • How cold is “too cold” to begin growing vegetables outside.
  • Why light is just as critical as temperature in winter gardening.
  • Which plants are best to overwinter until spring.
  • How a vegetable garden can be grown indoors – without an expensive electric bill.

If you’ve still got a green thumb and are wanting to try growing vegetables year-round, then this show is for you!
