Thought I'd start this thread for when we veggie gardeners get bored during the winter. I realize that many of you live in warm areas where winter may not actually put an end to raising garden produce, but perhaps that will add amusing variety to the discussion. Here in NY, aside from the bizarre 10" snowfall we had back in October(!), it's been really warm so far. The past few days we've had sunny 60F highs, which is fairly unheard of in December for us. Today it's dropped back to more usual temps of daytime highs of 40F or so. My veggie garden is mostly cleared out, bare ground. But I do have some odd little patches of baby lettuce, spinach, and carrots and I'm not sure what will come of them, they are too small to pick. I still have some scallions, a rather distressed clump of Swiss chard, and a few red kale plants that bravely produce a handful of leaves now and then. I chop those few leaves into soups when I can. There are quite a few baby kale 'volunteers' that sprang up from seed on their own, and I transplanted them to their own spot a month ago. They seem to be defying the freezes so far, and are fresh and pretty to look at even though they are too small to produce much of anything. My sage plant is still hanging in there. I dug up my two large rosemary plants and potted them in the living room, since rosemary always dies over the winter outside here for me. They started as little cheap 6" pots I bought this Spring, and over the summer became lush and impressive. I put them by the windows and strung tiny Christmas lights on them and they look very festive! If they live through the winter inside (which they should, I did a good job potting them) then I can put them outside again in the Spring. What are you all up to in your vegetable gardens?
