I multi sow my leeks. That is, I sow them in clumps as starters and let them grow in a group. My leeks are nearly all harvested. But they are still producing even now in January. Despite the cold, and despite the snow. One benefit of doing a no-dig compost mulch is the soil does not freeze as much or as hard as my sub-soil clay would. Making harvesting much easier, even at sub freezing temperatures. But what is important is the end result: a lovely fresh garden leek ready for slicing into my winter soup.
It is January. It is cold. Temperature was -12°C (10°F) last night. And it has been snowing. The garden looks bleak.
November and December is a good time to add some more compost to no dig beds
When I finally found this monster in August, it was over 60 cm (24 in) long and weighed in at 5.4 kg (12 lbs).
Pulled out a carrot recently, and it looked almost human.
The garden at the end of November is still producing.
We had our first frost of the year this week.
Beet, with zucchini make for a great veggie patty.
