Video: Gardener Shares Her Secrets for Harvesting All Winter Long

Many hobby gardeners can agree that spring and early fall are the best times of year. We love being able to plant, tend, and harvest within our garden spaces. It’s a great way to relieve stress and provides an escape from the responsibilities that are constantly pulling at our sleeves. As late fall approaches, we close the gates on our gardens and tuck our shovels away, knowing it will be months before we see them again.

Home gardener and content creator @carmonaacres posted a life changing TikTok video on how to garden through winter. I never have to say goodbye to my garden for winter again!


Happy first day of fall! Have you tried fall and winter gardening? If there are 3-6 weeks before your first frost, plant cool weather crops! Late starts will slow down during the winter, and produce super early spring. Earlier starts you can harvest during winter! I’m in zone 7b, but this works in colder zones too! #fallgardening #wintergarden #gardentips #howtogarden #gardentok

If you’re in zone 7b like the woman in this video, then you’ll know that many of her tips would also apply to gardens in colder zones. So even if you don’t get snow for months at a time, one of her tips is sure to be helpful for your home garden!

Her early plantings include pea and different brassica varieties, which are cold-hardy crops. To prepare her garden for winter hardy crops, she adds hoops over the beds and attaches frost cloth to create a sort of mini greenhouse.

Near the end of the video, she includes a shot of harvesting lettuce with snow on the ground – proving that her tips are suitable for even the coldest areas!
