How we achieved food abundance in late October:

1) Cold hardy crops
2) Succession planting cold hardy crops
3) Self-sowing cold hardy greens
4) Cold hardy edible perennials
5) Season extension with cold frames and hoop houses

Some of the crops in our garden that can survive a light frost without protection include artichokes, beets, carrots, celery, endive, lettuce, Swiss chard, perpetual spinach, arugula, radicchio, and bok choy.

And some that can survive a hard frost without protection include kale, collards, mustard greens, parsley, radishes, spinach, turnips, sunchokes, dandelion greens, French Sorrel, red veined sorrel, mache, claytonia, and minutina.

One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.
