Winter Garden

I planted a winter garden a few months ago, but the cats kept using the nicely turned soil as their bathroom and all the little plants were buried or dug up. So Abe made a couple of wicking beds that are closed off with greenhouse plastic (they used to have a frame and everything beforehand, but they were destroyed when the cows broke into the garden in June).

He has two beds that are at different stages (planted a couple of weeks apart), and everything is doing really well. A few of the vegetables are even starting to produce. Between the two beds, there are radishes, carrots, cabbages, beets, peas, collards, spinach, chard, broccoli, turnips, onions, Brussel spouts, and kale.
