My floating garden is most productive in summer, but it still provides me with fresh veggies in winter.
I've put most of my garden to bed to let it rest, but I leave crops in the ground that I know can survive freezing temperatures and occasional snow.
Earlier this week I went out to pick some things for dinner. I dug carrots and beets that were still crisp and juicy. Then I picked curly kale and Brussels sprouts. This is the first year I've grown sprouts and they're a success. I even found one onion that was missed during the fall.
With my pickings I made some fresh pickled beets, and a winter garden slaw for dinner.
I grated carrots, diced onion, cut sprouts in half, and chopped enough curly kale to fill the bowl. I like to use poppyseed dressing for my slaw. It's easy and gives the veggies a nice fresh tang.
Do you grow any winter vegetables in your garden? What works for you?
