Vegetable gardening seasons

A quick trip to the grocery this evening brought a question from a fellow shopper:  are you a Master Gardener?

Well, no, I'm not, I said, but I work at the Botanical Garden.

I supposed she'd seen me at Garden Fest (where we've been promoting growing your own vegetables for the last couple of years), but she didn't say.

We proceeded to talk about winter vegetables.  She asked if it was too late to sow kale seeds (yes), are broccoli and kale plants in the ground hardy (yes), and would a cold frame be handy (yes).

It's encouraging, even though we live in a small college town, to be asked these questions, from someone I didn't know!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
