This talk will cover the basics you need to know for planting and growing a bountiful fall and winter garden. It will include considerations for what fruits and vegetables grow best in Alameda’s climate with short daylight hours (think greens and citrus!). We’ll consider the timing of your plantings, how to amend the soil, discuss the merits of starting with seeds or seedlings, and touch on what fruit trees are well-suited for winter planting.
