What to Sow in November

I love growing vegetables all year round! This is what I sow in November.

Here we are! It's November again. Gray. Wet. Muddy. It's not quite winter yet here in southern Sweden. But I can feel it coming, and I'm basically just counting the days. I have to wait for the cold before I can start doing my winter sowings though. If I sow too soon, then my sowings might germinate and then the little seedlings won't make it through the winter.

I know that a lot of you feel hesitant about growing vegetables in late fall and early winter. When people find out how cold it can get here in Sweden, I understand the feeling. -22 degrees (or -30 degrees Celsius) isn't uncommon. But I can guarantee that it works! I'm going to write a bit more about my late winter sowing this year soon. This post is going to be about what I sow in November!
