I just checked the weather and saw this article about winter gardening: http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/home-garden/gardening/56869...

It got me thinking, you guys might like some more winter gardening resources.

This planting calendar was very helpful to me this year (the writer and I are both in zone 8, so you'll have to adjust his dates to fit your climate):

Here's a planting calendar that will give you customized dates:

More planting dates, by zone this time:

This site has a table with soil temperature requirements of crops as well as time to harvest:

Try this one: https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/summaries/summary.php?pub=2...

Then click the "View Now" button to the right.

The first link works for me if I copy and paste it, I'm not sure why it isn't clickable.
