Cold Crops

Below are the plants Pam and I discussed during the 1-hour presentation that we recommend during the winter season in a dome or covered greenhouse.

Lettuces

Lettuce is a plant that will LIVE  in cold but needs light to “grow”.  A few of my favorite lettuces to grow are Sandy, Buttercrunch and Mesclun. I have been growing lettuce during the winter months for over 10 years successfully.

Winter Cold Crops

Arugula 

There are many different varieties of arugula.  Most of the new varieties are easy to grow quickly unlike the native plant.  Arugula is one of my top 3 MUST grow in the geodesic biodome during the winter season.

Brassicas: Cabbage, Broccoli, and Kale
Watering in the dome.
These plants need space for their roots but grow wonderfully during the cold season. I enjoy the fresh and sweet flavor that these plants have when grown in the cool season.

Spinach

Will live in cold, but needs more light to “grow”.

Radishes

Radishes are my go-to plant.  I recommend radishes to everyone because they are are super easy to grow and can be eaten in roughly 30 days after planting the seed.

Herbs

Most of the herbs that live in the geodesic dome and greenhouse are their to live.  New growth will begin once the temperatures rise well above freezing and days get longer with the sun.
