A helpful book with this is Eliot Coleman's Four Season Harvest.  The way 
he shows
how to do this is to grow cool season vegetables to full size by mid fall 
and then
to keep them covered with 2 layers of tunnels to keep them fresh and ready 
in the
garden until needed for harvest.  It's important only to go and harvest when
the vegetables are in a thawed state which might be mid day plus or minus a
few hours when the weather is really cold.  He also has a more detailed
book aimed at growers that might be even more helpful, which can be ordered
directly from him(info in his book).
