Aerial View: December 1, 2012

The biggest change over the past month: Fall is over, and winter is here! The snow that fell off and on today helps highlight that for sure, but if you look closely, you will also notice that a whole lot of plants have died back or been pulled: Gone are the asparagus, peas, peppers, nasturtiums, borage, and chamomile. The horseradish has been cut back, and the greenhouse hoops and cold frames have been covered back up. The garlic has been mulched in straw, and the rye grass cover crop has taken root in most of the empty spaces.

What's left to eat? Under cover we have cabbage, lettuce, carrots, beets, Swiss chard, turnips, a few left over radishes, spinach, and mache. We also have kale, parsnips, leeks, fennel bulbs, and celery that are uncovered. The parsnips, kale, and leeks should be fine for a while but should be covered soon; the celery and fennel needs to be brought in and used up ASAP.
