    Here's the planting days for November.

    1-2: above ground crops, extra good for vine crops, where climate allows.
    3-4: don't plant anything on either of these days.
    5-6: plant root crops
    7-8: seeds planted on these days will rot.
    9-11: best days for planting root crops such as potatoes, onions, etc. Plant your garlic on these days.
    12-16: good time to clear fence rows & kill weeds.
    17-18: good days to plant root crops, sew grains, hay and forage crops. Plant flowers.
    19-20: 19th is good for root crops. 20th is food for above ground crops like lettuce, cabbage, etc. You can start seed beds on either day.
    21-22: poor planting days.
    23-25: plant above ground crops like peas, corn, tomatoes, etc. if you live in a warm climate.
    26-27: barren days, kill pests.
    28-29: good days for planting vine crops, and other above ground crops.
    30: barren days, don't plant anything.

    They don't provide zones. It just says to take your climate into consideration. I figure the planting is for warm climates or greenhouses. Some micro climates might work also.

    This might seem like a dumb question:

    I'm in zone 6a/b and winter is coming so what would happen to root crops
    if i planted them now?


    Won't cabbage, etc., just die with the first hard frost?

    I thought winter was when you tilled the garden and put it to rest?

    cabbage wont be killed by frost. If it is very cold, it probably wont grow any either. If you plant your root crops now, they may very likely grow just fine. After all, the right time is the right now time.
