Texas Winter Vegetable Garden Planting, Clifton, Texas

Winter isn’t known as a popular time for gardening. However, in Texas, the weather is such that you can actually start to plant certain vegetables so they’re ready to thrive come spring. In fact, getting a head start on this part of your garden could actually improve the taste and viability of some of your crops. Here’s what you should know if you’re interested in purchasing some farm supplies and getting started early this season.

The Benefits of Prepping Your Texas Garden in Winter

Many Vegetables Can Withstand the Climate 

Certain vegetables can handle frosts and low temperatures quite well. They may not be well suited for areas that are constantly covered by ice and snow, but Texas winters are usually moderate enough to support hardy vegetable growth.

It Saves You Time During Spring

Once you’ve planted these hardy vegetables in winter, it takes them off your to-do list in the spring. You only have a short amount of time to get your vegetables and other plants in order, so they’re set up for optimal growth throughout the spring and summer. If you’ve already purchased all of your farm supplies, set up your garden plot, and gotten a head start on some of your planting, then you’ll have more time to focus on planting the rest of your spring crops and maintaining your garden properly.
