Overwintering

Taken this morning, a picture of spinach overwintering in a cold-frame

I’m still accepting new members for next summers’ vegetable CSA.  A list of some of the veggies to expect throughout the 18-week season include, but are not limited to:

arugula, beans, beets, broccoli, boc choy, brussle sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, celeriac, cucumber, eggplant, fennel, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, asian greens, onion, parsnip, peas, peppers, potato, radish, rutabaga, spinach, squash (summer and winter), pumpkin, swiss chard, tomato, tomatillo, ground cherry, turnip and zucchini.

There are other crops I plan to grow as well, but this list is a good starter.  It’s important to note that this list is not a guarantee.  As any gardener will know, unforeseen circumstances, such as irregular weather, can severely impact crops.  My insurance policy includes growing a wide diversity of crops, on several unique garden sights, as well as using mulch with certain crops, irrigation when needed, and floating row cover for certain crops (both for its thermal value as well as pest protection).
