Growing Greens In Denton Tx
How to grow lettuce, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, kale, collards, and mustard greens in Texas. Greens are really easy to grow and in Texas we have two growing seasons for greens.
In the video I forgot to say that kale, collard greens and mustard greens are more cold hardy than lettuce, Swiss chard and spinach and so they don't need to be covered or protected when the temperature reaches 22 degrees or below or a light snow is expected. If heavy ice is expected then you might just cover them to keep the leaves from potentially being discolored by the ice. In the video you will notice that I planted the very cold-hardy plants outside of the cold frame.
