Gardening In The Fall

Garlic, like most hardy plants, establishes its roots in the fall, then slowly grows in the near frozen ground. Sometimes you’ll see green shots coming up through the snow.

We grew kale once in Newfoundland. It’s a rough, leafy vegetable that you cook like cabbage. It’s sweet, I think. We were harvesting it after the snow fell; it’s hearty.
