Real Time Web Analytics Winter Gardening Series 2014 | Stoney Acres

Year Round Gardening Series

The approach of August means it’s time to start thinking about your winter gardens.  We love gardening in the winter, it’s so nice to be able to head out to the garden on a snowy day and open the cold frames or hoop house and harvest veggies!  The first year I started writing on Stoney Acres I wrote a 9 part series on winter gardening that is applicable to anyone that lives in Zones 4 to 7.  For the last couple of years I have re-posted that series in July and August.  This year I have other things I’d like to be writing about so I thought I’d just give all of you that haven’t read the series a list of the posts that you can link to and read:

  1. Year Round Gardening Series Part 1 – Introduction
  2. Year Round Gardening Series Part 2 – Bed Preparation
  3. Year Round Gardening Series Part 3 – Crop Selection
  4. Year Round Gardening Series Part 4 – Additional Crop Selections
  5. Year Round Gardening Series Part 5 – Planting Times
  6. Year Round Gardening Series Part 6 – Cold Frame Construction
  7. Year Round Gardening Series Part 7 – Hoop Houses
  8. Year Round Gardening Series Part 8 – Cold Frame Management
  9. Year Round Gardening Series Part 9 – Harvesting & Wrap up



Please don’t laugh at the pictures in this series, it’s been on my list for a while to go back and update the photos now that I have a better camera, but I haven’t had time.  I hope you find the series helpful for your Winter Garden plans!!

    I’ve found winter gardening here almost impossible, so I’ve given up on it. There just isn’t sun here in the winter. All the neighboring houses block it. There is sun in the circle garden, but the snow comes off the roof with a vengeance (even breaking our glass table one winter). I’m sure a cold frame would not survive.
