It’s hibernation time for the garden. For the next couple of months, the garden will be absorbing nutrients from the cover crop to prepare itself for spring planting. We still have a few vegetables growing such as cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, kale, kohlrabi, chard, thyme, and carrots, but they are slowly growing with the cover crop until the spring.
The cover crop is a mix of winter peas, rye, vetch, and clover.
And here are some photos of the vegetables that are keeping the cover crop company.
To prepare for a cold winter, we also hung our “irrigation system” up along the back wall. This allows the water to drain so that it doesn’t freeze and crack the pipes.
