November Garden Photos

This is the first year we've attempted a winter garden, with the help of lots of mulch and reemay (floating row cover). It's amazing to still be eating from the garden at this time of year!

Things growing in the garden now: onions, leeks, garlic, beets, chinese cabbage, bok choy, dino kale, red russian kale, chards of all sorts, lettuces, collards, cabbages, broccoli and cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, radishes (daikon, French Breakfast, and Black Spanish round), mustards, celery, and carrots.

Top to bottom: Italienscher lettuce, mustard greens, chard, leeks, more lettuce, red russian kale, 250 onions of various types, and beets.

Our fall garden is still going strong as well. Last night we deployed the plastic sheeting since temps dipped to 30. I'm bartering as we speak for large glass panes (4'x10') that I may make an honest-to-god cold frame from, for a true winter garden.
