Autumn finally here!

A heavy frost finally hit our area, but the winter garden is still growing strong! I planted the winter garden on the sloping southern part of the field where the corn and potatoes grew, so it is slightly protected. The circle also protects the more fragile lettuce plants! The circle garden has golden and red beets, three varieties of kale, two varieties of broccoli, green bib lettuce, romaine lettuce, butter lettuce, radishes, onions, red and green cabbages, rutabagas, swiss chard, and some winter squash. It is exciting to see the winter garden continuing to grow as the weather gets chillier and the fall colors are exploding!
