    I am interested in what type of vegetables grow best here in North Texas for the winter

      I just noted your question so it’s a bit late, but in most years with urban settings spinach, black lettuce, and other leafy greens are good options.

      Mustard greens all winter. Cauliflower but get it in the ground close to 1st frost date. Leave carrots and beets in the ground; they will continue to grow a little and will give you fresh healthy carrots and beets until next spring.

    • Swiss chard and kale will survive into the mid 20’s without protection. With protection I’ve had them survive into the low teens. I have video at
