Take advantage of the cold days and prepare some vegetables and herbs to sow or plant in small spaces.
The winter is the hardest time to cultivate, but anyway we can take advantage of some vegetables and aromatic for sowing or planting in small spaces.
Sowing can be direct (which will require subsequent thinning ) or in a seedbed (that is when we do not sow directly but do it first in a box or small container). The flowering of our crops will be visited by numerous beneficial insects.
We must stagger the plantings, make frequent cuts, and remove the flowers. This will guarantee us a continuous supply of fresh leaves.
With this technique, we can sow Valerianella, an annual, small, and roseate plant. Its leaves can be eaten, and have a nutty flavor. T
Valerianella is propagated by seeds, by direct sowing, or in seedlings. Its cycle is autumn-winter and it is ideal for cold climates or as an intercropping with others.
During this season we can also plant carrots and turnips, although it must be taken into account that they do not support transplants well.
These vegetables are propagated by seeds and for containers, the small varieties available in nurseries are recommended.
Of the herbs and aromatic plants in pots, due to their biological importance and their resistance to winds, a recommended sector for their cultivation is the living fence.
