winter garden?

After hearing about my mom’s winter garden — it occurred to me that it would be possible to do a winter garden here in NoCal. Of course, I am getting conflicting information. Some say it is too late , some say I still have time. I think the ones that want me to plant peas in August are crazy. It is way too hot and dry for peas in August/ September. This year’s cold snap that is hitting us now — not usual. ( ok today it started warming up ) . But someplace else said it is the amount of light during the day that is the issue. Confusing. Not sure there will be a winter garden this year,but maybe next year.
