I would like to be able to grow a variety of food year round and was wondering if anyone new of a place that has seeds selected for winter. Lacking the proper terminology here so let me explain…Is there a seed supplier or has anyone personally tried growing fruits and vegetables outside during the winter and used the seeds from the plants that thrive the best to start again next winter…hopefully ending in a genetic pool that is better suited for winter than that plant normally is
If you have a green house or hoop house you can plant and grow for the next warmest zone to you. Say you are in zone 7, then you can grow as if in zone 8. This means that if you are in Arkansas you can grow in the green house (unheated) as if in southern Louisiana.
Hot boxes help to start plants early. These are glass covered boxes for starting plants. You can get plants started and past the frost dates then transplant them.
