  What greens can you grow in winter in Washington State's Puget Sound Area? Here are 3 that I grow.

The plants on the left are collards and the ones on the right are red kale. Both were planted from seed in mid summer. They are very hardy and will grow throughout the winter and into early spring before they go to seed. The leaves can be steamed, used in green salads or used as garnish.

This is India mustard that was also planted in mid summer and it too can be harvested throughout the winter. This variety of mustard has a bite so use it sparingly in salads to add that zing. It too makes a great garnish for meat/ fish dishes and potato/pasta salads.
