Personally I do not really have what you would call ‘green fingers’ and to be honest my hands are so sore during wintertime that I do not even want to think about getting them dirty – but I decided that 2011 was going to be the year I will try to grow my own vegetable garden. Seeing that I love cooking soup and stews during winter, I decided that this was the time during which I want to grow fresh vegetables – and immediately I started dreaming about adding big, fresh veggies – from my own garden – to the pot when I cook.
But because we have such cold winters, it is not quite as easy as I dreamt it to be. I soon realised that I needed some advice before I could even think about starting my own little garden.
Which veggies will grow well during winter?
According to JJ van Rensburg from Garden World, winter vegetable garden varieties are much less than in summer. “But now is the time to make use of nature to enrich your soil as much as possible.”
