Over wintering seeds in the garden

I am so excited by the cilantro I put in last fall (Read about that here). It looks healthy and is growing so fast now that the weather is warming up.
I will definitely plant it this way next year. I wonder if there's any other plants that can sown in the fall for a spring harvest?

Of course there is garlic. Our garlic patch looks nice - we'll see how it is when we harvest it.
And I do have a few carrots that were sown last fall that are growing now. (They are much bigger now than in this photo) And a volunteer lettuce plant that has not been photographed yet.
I'll have to research this before the fall. Anything to get a head start on the garden in the spring is a help!

  1. What a lovely potager you've created - I can't wait to see what it looks like as the season progresses!

  2. I have the most healthy spinach for the longest by sowing in the fall- I always do it like that now.

    Love your garden design, too, and am looking forward to seeing it grow!

  3. I have always had problems with spinach bolting - I will try fall planting it for next season. Thanks Jami!
