Gardening in December

Admittedly, it’s been a mild fall now winter so far. But my first year experiment with hoop houses is happily successful. We’ve had 12 degree nights. I opened my beds on Christmas Day. Here you can see the inner wire hoops I added which supports the light, floating row cover that stays over the veges. This Romaine Lettuce and Spinach is still doing great.We ate a tasty fresh salad from this bed last night. Neither veggie is growing much at present, but they are maintaining their freshness and not freezing.
On December second I planted several things. If you look carefully in the picture below, you can see spinach seedlings! On December 25th! Crazy.
My bunching onions are holding well also. We are about to get a winter storm – due today actually. So we’ll see how things hold up. I only wish I had planted these beds full! But I have really been enjoying having a winter harvest of fresh vegetables. And now that the daylight is creeping up, things will begin to grow again.
Excuse me, but I have to go and plant seeds in my garden.
In December.
