Winter Garden Review
Now, we were still harvesting fresh tomatoes through the end of the year. The vines were dying, and were dead by then, but the fruit was good.
But we had some winter-specific crops. This kale was probably the biggest success. this grew, start to finish - in the greenhouse over the winter.
The (very) limited number of daylight hours was probably our biggest enemy. I did not supplement them artificially.
I planted some in maybe September of 2012, and it is looking like it's getting close to harvesting.
For next year, I'm going to skip the carrots. I'll probably do more of the cabbagey things: cabbage, broccoli, kohl rabi. I'll probably do the garlic thing again. But I've got more research to do before fall: this was a good start, but we didn't eat much from the greenhose or garden this past winter.
