Winter Garden

The garden is looking sparse but still producing enough greens for our daily use.  Yesterday I harvested Chinese cabbage, leeks, black mustard, Kale and a selection of young greens.  We had a leek and Chinese cabbage quiche and a large salad. I also planted a big batch of onions, spinich, and more ruby chard.   

This is my first winter garden.  The main difference between a winter and a spring garden, at least in this climate, is that winter veggies aren't the kind of crops that lend themselves to preserving.  Also, no fighting the heat and heaping yards of mulch trying to hold in the water.  So it's a really easy, pleasant time to garden.
