The best answer to this question is planting frost tolerant, cool season crops that can withstand harsh cold weather e.g. broccoli, cabbage, Cauliflower, lettuce etc. But you can artificially increase temperature in winter by the use of heaters in the greenhouse or artificial lighting in the field that produces heat. Traditionally farmers would fence the edge of the garden to help keep plants off colds. The use of Products like Vapour guard can also help a great deal.
Determinate tomatoes are varieties that grow to a fixed mature size, ripen all their fruit in a short period (usually between 10-15days) and are “bush” tomatoes. Once this first flush of fruit has ripened, the plant will begin to diminish in vigour and will set little to no new fruit.
Indeterminate tomato varieties are vining plants that continue growing in length throughout the growing season, which is why they often are referred to as vining tomatoes. They continually set and ripen fruit through thire entire growing season and as a result, they give a slow and steady supply of tomatoes.
