Sort of ... I'm just expanding and learning how to get this going as I want to learn to garden all year long like a couple of my friends do. I grow a few things in pots inside. I'm trying to build a "window farm" of sorts to grow lettuce in during the winter. I'm also overwintering asparagus and garlic this winter.

I really want to learn a lot more about this but the books I have basically have gardens put to bed in the winter and that's all I've done up until this past year. I'd really like to learn a lot more!

I was considering doing a couple of spinach plants, since it doesn't really get cold enough here to make it impossible to do all year, but haven't really had time to actually look into it.

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

We get a lot of snow so winter gardening is hard to do if you don't have a tunnel or greenhouse.

My goal is to see how late I can harvest before the snow comes. Right now all that's in the garden is kale, mustard greens, collards, swiss chard, a few lettuce, green onions, herbs, carrots and 1 beautiful tatsoi plant.

I am going to go out and harvest December 5th or so and see what is still alive. It is getting to be -5 Celsius as nights now so I don't hold out much hope for the swiss chard and lettuce much longer.

I want to leave some kale and collards in for after the snow to see how they do.

There are also three plants still putting flowers - a cornflower plant, ursinia and salvia. They are pretty sad looking though.
