Winter Garden.....

This year I am trying a small experiment by growing a few winter hardy varieties in the bed at the front of the house. Right now I only have a few cabbages and lettuce varieties, just to see how they do.  So far we have had very mild winter temps, but last night the thermometer actually dipped into the low teens.

I wasn't sure what I would find this am when I slipped out right after sunrise... And I was very pleased to see how well these cabbage and lettuce look!

What do you think?

I have to say I am loving how pretty  the cabbages look, and think next winter I will plant an entire row in the front bed along with lettuce and spinach.

Home made sauerkraut anyone?? YUM!
