It's late November now, and I'm contemplating what would be good vegetables to plant in the next couple weeks. I understand that most things planted now won't be harvestable until spring.
I'm in Santa Rosa, California, where we do get frost, but temperatures rarely dip very much below freezing (and basically never below 25F/-4C). Not sure if we're technically zone 8B or 9A. Maps claim 8B, but there's a lot of microclimates and 9A might be more accurate. Rain, fog and overcast weather are common through winter.
I know November seems late, but a lot of my spring and summer plantings have only started dying off in the past couple weeks.
I've got maybe 50 square feet (4.5 square meters) of raised bed space that's not already occupied with a perennial.
Already planted some kale a couple months back and considering planting some other kale varieties. Also planted some fava beans recently, mostly for the nitrogen.
Looking for ideas for other winter crops.
