Snow Day

Winter Garden

We just ate one of our tomatoes in December!

Long time no post--mostly because I planted and forgot about it. The greens (kale and arugula) were not planted early enough. They are hanging in there, but so small I don't see how they can survive a freeze. Since we had tomatoes through the fall, I was reluctant to pull anything out to plant them. I also thought summer was too early to plant winter greens. Slugs are eating the kale. Lessons for next year's planning.

The greenhouse garden is doing great though, here's a look from late November. It's only a few weeks later, and the garden is currently covered in snow (pics of that later). The beets, cauliflower, lettuce, and parsnips are doing great.
