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
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.
