As we enter into the harshest days of winter, my garden is again in transition. The onions I planted last week are just fine being left alone in their raised beds. The lettuces are still beautiful, and we had fresh salad for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There are 3 broccoli plants that need to be harvested soon, and the spinach still needs to be harvested, perhaps today. I pulled up the sugar snap peas, which didn’t do as well as I had hoped. They were hard to train to cling to the trellises I had, which were not ideal. The strawberries are chilling out in their 4’x4′ space, their roots kept warm by a thick layer of mulch. They continue to put on new leaves. The cabbages are gorgeous, but not making heads. I’ve read that if you tie the leaves closer together, it will force heads to form.
