I did not mention in my last post that I do manage a winter garden down here in the hollow when the leaves are off and there is more daylight on the beds. spinach and turnip greens grew very well last winter and when I’m not too lazy I can get some really good lettuce going in Feb thru early April. Of course the salad bar is closed to all ungulates and stays covered with deer netting. An added benefit of the turnips if they bolt early is the bees love them since at that time they are about the only flowers in bloom. I left them blooming for weeks just for the bees.
