Cool Weather Vegetables
Here on Long Island, there really aren’t any vegetables that you can’t grow. However, there are some options that can extend your production season, allowing you to enjoy your fresh harvests almost all year long. Here are some ideas on what you can grow in your Long Island garden for extended enjoyment.
Cabbages are fantastic vegetables that are not only easy to grow, but they’re versatile in the kitchen and you can grow them most any time of the year. They’re an excellent early spring crop and fall crop, and will continue to do well right up until things frost over. Lettuces and other leafy greens like mustard and collard greens are more wonderful cold season crops that can be started before frost or early in September for a late fall harvest.
Root veggies are excellent, well bearing crops suited perfectly for growing in a Long Island garden. These include carrots, beets, radishes, and turnips. These vegetables are also naturally disease resistant, making them enjoyable for even the most novice of gardeners.
