To Sleep Perchance To Dream

I put the garden to bed early this year. My thought was, give the soil a rest for one season. But truly, it was because of the demands of work projects. Who knew it would be such a mild winter. I've really missed my fresh winter vegetables this season, especially after seeing what others have grown. The photos over at Subsistence Pattern blog are particularly impressive. That bowl of fresh greens in the December 29th post have really whet my appetite for home grown fare. What are you growing this winter?

You have to do whatever is right for you at the time. Last season you needed a break. Next time you might make a different decision. The beds sure do look snug though!

Most of my beds are tucked in under mulch as yours is but I do have one bed that gets great morning sun where I'm growing a few varieties of lettuce for the winter. In fact, I think they're about ready to be harvested.

Lucky you Cindy. Wish I had planted some. I noticed Kathy over at Skippy's Vegetable Garden has done well with her immense cold frames as well.
