In the end, my winter garden ended up being somewhat successful.
I lost quite a few plants to moth caterpillars and frost bite but I still managed to get a few survivors.
I have a couple cabbages, some turnips, kale, and broccoli sprouts to show for my efforts.
The best part of this experience? Learning what to do next year! Next year I have every intention of growing a winter garden again, but this time I will grow my own seedlings and only plant what I know will be most likely to survive.
Oh, and my garlic is doing well too! I’m very excited to harvest that in a couple months.
My personal plot in April, showing what survived the winter.
