Now it's the Winter Rains

Actually today it's dry, but the ground is still pretty saturated and this morning there was frost and a little ice.

But I'm still harvesting salads every few days. A fantastic mix of Winter lettuces and radicchio, as well as all my arugula volunteers has gotten us through the winter so far. I've also got a couple of Lacinato Kale plants that are still producing tender leaves into their 2nd year. And we still get beets and carrots out of the backyard beds.

So I think I will reach my goal of having something to eat from the garden all year round.

And I finally built my 2 little cold frames on the south facing beds, which should allow me to get an early start with some spinach and other cool weather crops and should help me grow more things into the fall and winter.
