What Should We Plant in Our Winter Garden?

What Should We Plant in Our Winter Garden?

We were home visiting family in Southern California this past weekend and, much to our surprise, Mom's got a spot in the backyard all ready for a winter garden. This is her first shot at it (she's more of a summer gardener). So she's looking for ideas...

We thought we'd put the question out here to Re-nest readers: What would you plant in early November in Southern California? What are some easy, hardy winter vegetables? She's got quite a bit of space, so the more suggestions the better.

We know greens do well in the winter ... but what are some other fun veggies to grow? What are you planting right now? And do you have any tips or tricks up your sleeve that you'd be willing to share?
