Planting greens in the fall

Turnip, collard and mustard greens are my favorite cool-weather crop, although I've always wondered why they weren't more prolific like in our friends' garden. Well, duh to me, greens need more cool weather, so this year I'll plant them in September, as suggested by my county's Master Gardeners (zone 9). Planting in February does not allow enough cool weather for a good crop.

  1. My father-in-law used to call me a city girl until I learned to eat greens! Now he approves of me as a true country girl
