try some cold frames!
we are in zone 5 & have fresh greens & some VERY early other crops in
january & february.
eliot coleman wrote on the subject. he lives in maine in 5 zone as well. his
book is available-i think you can ask in libraries -can i give the name
here? or is it considered advertising?
well let me know.
cold frames are easy to build. 12 inches at the back & 8 at the front. the
sides are cut in the 12 to 8 slope. covers are usually glass & you face them
south-with 12 inches to the north. like a box that slopes with a glass lid u
can lift.
well it gives us baby greens, lettuce, some early carrots etc.. in the dead
of zone 5 winters.
good luck-p.s. this can be right outside your front door-a 4 foot bed grows
a lot!
