The new high tunnel is full of green stuff all through the winter. Some beds are overwintering crops that will start to grow again and be harvested early in the spring including carrots, spinach, onions, shallots, swiss chard and some baby kale.

The bed of beets looks beautiful but probably didn’t get quite large enough before cold weather stopped all growth. They won’t be tender enough for sale in the spring, so the chickens will be happy to eat them as winter greens. Win some, lose some-but waste nothing.
