Wayne Bowman, Hunt County Master Gardener, says onions can be planted now in Northeast Texas, and if the soil temperature is at least 50 degrees, cole crops -- cabbable, broccoli and kale -- can also be planted without worrying about freezing temperatures.

Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says October is prime time for planting several varieties of onions in Northeast Texas.   It is also prime time for planting garlic,  and turnip and collard greens.

Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says mid-January is a good time to plant crops such as broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and some varieties of onions.  Byron says the cold winter we've had will be good for gardeners because it will have killed a lot of insects.

Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says leeks, onions and garlic are excellent plants to grow during the winter months -- starting now -- in Northeast Texas.  Garlic has the advantage of keeping away animals who don't like the smell.
