Earlier this week we finished covering all of the beds with straw before the major frosts hit. We do have crops growing in the garden right now; some for spring, and some for winter harvest: garlic, fava bean, spinach, carrots, turnips, peas, onions, and chard are all holding in the ground waiting to spring forth in warmer weather this spring. Meanwhile, arugula, spinach, carrots, kale, chard (under cover), tatsoi, and leeks are holding their own in this winter weather, still offering the occasional harvest during the dark months. We also have a couple of rows of beets that we started late; in the spring we will thin them down, allow them to flower, and harvest the seed. Here are a couple photos of the farm under cover.
