12/22/2011 Winter Solstace 2011 Garden Update. Growing our winter garden we have - Red Russian kale, Dino or Lacinto Kale, Swiss Chard, Beets, Lettuce, Turnips, Radish, Collard Greens, Cabbage, Egyptian Walking Onions, Garlic, Raddicio, Diakon Radish, Leeks. Night temperatures have been below freezing for over a week now, and frost is still on the ground, all the winter vegetables are holding up. This year we heavily mulched the beds in late fall before the freezes and that has helped the plants endure the cold weather better. Our total poundage for the year is 1694 pounds! Thats nearly 4x the poundage of last year and we were late to plant!
Before: lowlands, we added a few inches of soil and mulch and made a no till garden using cardboard and tree trimming chips for the paths, and mounded soil and compost.
