How does the seeds fair after being ground frozen all winter & what sort of seeds can not be frozen at all ?

sounds like you will have a good Garden come spring .

Most of my mature Tomato bushes stand between 4 to 5 ft high but mine are tied up to keep them of the ground

Yesterday I planted my fall garden; radishes, lettuce, peas, onion sets, garlic and parsnips. They will not germinate now but sit under the dirt and snow until spring and sprout when nature tells them it is alright to do so. Today I may put in some tomato seed that I had left over from spring seeding. I have had them come from seed that got worked in when I cultivated down some waste tomatoes--- it's worth a try.

I planted my garlic on the first too. I got carried away and bought 20 bulbs but after breaking them up to plant I only had room in my raised bed for 3 bulbs.

As far as I can tell, anything I have tried planting in the fall doesn't seem to be hurt by the freezing over winter, it's being caught by a late frost in the spring after they have germinated that does the damage. Beans, for example can't take much frost after the leaves have started, but peas aren't nearly as tender and can take a few degrees of frost. Sometimes the biennials will be "fooled" by fall planting into thinking it is their second year and will go to seed; examples being carrots, parsnips, turnips etc. It's always a gamble, definitely a learning experience, and lots of fun and surprises too.

Just got to look at this thread.  Very impressed with your garden, bbuckler.  Mine up here in Mass is (was) very small by comparison.  More or less just a salad garden.  When we finally get to Texas I more'n likely will just have a few raised beds.  Can't wait.

Never been successful with a fall seeding, the seeds would rot . We never have a dry fall and the ground gets saturated then freezes solid 4' down... I mulch the dickens out of my carrots so I can dig them during the winter, but if we don't much snow... They too will freeze. But the cool thing is you leave them alone and when the start re-growing in the spring you can dig them up and have the sweetest carrots you ever ate.

bbuckler  I am very lucky that i don't have to mulch yet for some time as the soil is natural lantana & tree  leaf mulch topped off with Cattle pass & Hay mulch mix
