Winter months are salad days here in the low Sonoran desert.  Although we have had nights that have dipped below freezing (indeed a few into the 20’s and high teens), we have managed to maintain a garden of root vegetables (like carrots, radishes, beets and parsnips), herbs, and several types of heirloom lettuces. The photo above is a scatter planting of heirloom red oak leaf lettuce, endive, and marigolds (whose petals are edible).
