This planting guide for Zone 9 will give you fifteen (yes, 15!) vegetables you can plant in November for a great harvest all winter. Let's get started!
You'll love this giant Red Mustard from my friends at Redwood Seeds. These huge leaves with red and green coloring pack a spicy punch. The flavor is wasabi-like when eaten raw, but the spice diminishes when cooked--which makes these greens great for stir-fry or soups.
Slow to bolt in the spring, it’s also resistant to aphids and harlequin beetles. Plant in November and begin harvesting in late December.
This delicious vegetable is often overlooked by home gardeners. If you’ve ever tasted it at an Asian restaurant, you’ll definitely want to grow it in your garden! It’s delicious when stir-fried with some garlic and ginger...mmmm.
Green Fortune is the variety that I like to grow. It rapidly produces cute and chubby mini heads whose crispy pastel stalks and deep green leaves size up and are ready to eat in record time (45 days).
If you never can seem to use up an entire head of celery from the store, you might think that growing it doesn’t make sense. Au contraire!
If you grow celery in your garden, you can harvest individual stalks as needed—amazing flavor and no more waste. I like "Utah" celery from Botanical Interests. Plant in November and begin harvesting in January or February.
My Dad used to tell me “if you’re planting Swiss Chard, you’d better like it a LOT. It just never stops growing!”
I like to grow Baby Leaf chard because it has a mild flavor. For big, showy stems you’ll want to grow Bright Lights chard (pictured). Can you believe those amazing colors?
Bright Lights has green leaves and crunchy stalks in a vivid rainbow of yellow, crimson, gold, pink and white with an occasional gorgeous stem of orange. Plant in November and begin harvesting in January.
Tender and sweet, Red Winter Kale is mildly flavored compared to other types of kale. It has beautiful, dark-red stems and beautifully shaped leaves. Besides being chock-full of nutrients, it’s great in a salad or as a garnish.
Sow seeds directly in the garden or set out plants in November, and begin harvesting in January...just in time to make a nutritious green smoothie.
