I have planted cold weather crops 3 times now, and have NEVER had success with them. I have had plenty of carrot hair, but no carrots... plenty of broccoli leaves, but no broccoli... kale that only grows to be 3 inches long before frost hits. I think part of the problem is that I usually had a newborn to care for around this time of the year for the last 2 years. So, this year... it's MY year... I will succeed at these cold weather crops... there's no giving into failure. It sounds like an awful lot of pressure... but people, I really want to harvest purple carrots.
