Those new to gardening may feel a bit intimidated about trying their hand at winter gardening. Beginners may find it is best to start with plants that are native to the area and have a high tolerance for cold weather. Lettuce, peas, and broccoli are several vegetables that prefer cool weather and may be a good choice for beginners. An indoor herb garden is a good choice for beginning gardeners. Growing herbs indoors is relatively easy and is a good introduction for the new gardener into things such as climate control, temperature, and proper lighting.
Mulch, Mulch, Mulch! Apply a 3-4" inch layer of mulch to your garden, after the soil freezes to keep the soil cold rather than protecting the soil from becoming cold. This will help reduce root injury and help against continual freezing and thawing.
