Planting Winter Greens with Fox10 Phoenix AZ AM

Greens are my favorite! And while most of the country is dealing with ice on their windshields we can plant iceburg lettuce! This time of year you can plant from seed or started plant and really grow an amazing array of crops. I personally prefer from seed but you are definitely getting a jump start from the plant starts. Let me know if you all have any questions and thanks to all the new followers! Have an amazing day all! ✌️💚🌱
