Our overwintering greens got a big drink of water this weekend ⛆ We had quite a storm here! (Swipe across) Thankfully, it was warm enough to pull back the row covers yesterday without the risk of overnight frost.. it meant covering everything up in the rain tonight, though, before the temperature drops. Ah, the wintertime dance that I do here in zone 7 😅 but it means that we have fresh greens in the winter, so I can definitely get on board with that.
Do you grow food during the winter? What types of things do you grow? Do you have to protect them from the cold? .
Under these row covers, I planted heirloom kale, daikon radishes, Asian stir fry greens, spinach, and carrots. Today, I noticed some of last spring's Swiss chard popping up, too! 🌱
