Top 10 Salad Greens For Fall Planting

While most of the plants on this list can be used in salads, some such as spinach and kale could be described as dual purpose in that the young leaves can be eaten fresh and the mature plant can be cooked as a vegetable. The important point is that they can all be planted at this season to provide food into the winter in suitable conditions. These ten edible greens are described in an article by Lauren Dunec Hoang which I found on the Houzz website.

In most climates, leafy greens such as lettuces, arugula, spinach, chard and mustard greens grow best planted in late summer or early spring, where the plants thrive in the warm daytime temperatures and cool nighttime ones. In mild-winter areas, or with the help of cold frames and frost blankets, you can grow these crops throughout winter.
