Cool weather vegetables and greens love spring

After living in Fairbanks, Alaska, for 20 years, I really appreciate the fact that I can grow many vegetables year-round here in California. Some of my favorite varietals for my north county garden add both beauty and food to my raised beds. Kale, swiss chard, spinach and lettuces such as redleaf, romaine and arugula, thrive throughout winter and spring and will produce before the extreme heat arrives and drives them to bolt.
