WS (container) vs DS (overwintering)? Kale, carrots etc
I have been reading and learning as much about WS as I can. I'm really excited. A few questions have come up as I am now furiously planting in my doctored recyclables, particularly about WS vs DSOW (direct sow over wintering)
1. I read on here that edible root veges (carrot, radish, beets etc) do not tend to do well WS (container) because of disturbed roots? Have people had any luck just direct sowing them into the garden soil under the snow? Wait for spring? Or have others been lucky with transplanting from the WS containers?
2. what about leafy edibles? Specifically: kale, arugula, spinach, swiss chard, lettuces. The seem more delicate when small, and I'm unsure how to transplant them if I WS them. Would they work (or work better?) if I just DSOW them? Or some version of using newspaper pots or toilet rolls to make individual pots within the WS milkjug?
HUGE THANKS! This community is amazing!
