Default Vegetables to grow in Raleigh all year round.

Hello,

I'm interested in learning if there is a version of lettuce or
"similar" vegetable that I can grow on my patio garden all year round
and not have to worry about the cold. I live in the Raleigh, NC
area. What handles the weather the best here? Do I need to get a
greenhouse to cover the plants on the patio during the winter months?
Can I get by without an additional light source (than the sun), or a
heater (other than the sun)?

Thanks
Sam

We've had good luck growing spinach through the winter here, but the
success depends on how severe the winter is.

Of course, there is the favorite southern green collards.
There is a thick, meaty green called "corn mache" that is said to
really take the cold:

I plan to try it myself this year.

I'd like to grow a variety of lettuce, but I have a patio garden that
faces north, and I'm a bit concerned that there might not be enough
winter sun, along with the cold nights. If I have some sort of a
greenhouse with a clear plastic covering, do you think this will help
me grow this crop successfully. I don't plan on buying a heater for
this outdoor patio garden.

Unfortunately, you'll still need sunlight to make a crop.
Do you know how many hours you might have?
