Winter begins in late December, and here about two weeks before it starts, we’ve got some flourishing collards . . .
and some good looking cabbages and dusty millers . . .
as well as some onions that are probably ready to harvest . . .
and some pretty dysfunctional pumpkin vines that we planted too late.
After some record-breaking heat in late November and early December that caused things to last a little longer, we finally cut the last of the basil and sacrificed last summer’s pepper plant to its wintry fate: compost.
