First week of December and no garden work to do! I'm very bored and anxiously awaiting the seed catalogs to show up in the mail. The winter hasn't been too bad yet-only a few inches of snow and about 10 days of below freezing temperatures. This head of lettuce-it's remained this size for close to a month. And with the shortened days and colder weather, it won't grow. It will sit there and hibernate until it's ready to be harvested. My garden becomes a very large refrigerator for our family in the winter. If you're able to match the right crops with the right planting schedule, you can eat all winter long. Four season gardening is very possible in zone 6 and I think it's the most fun and enjoyable because there's literally no work. What could be better than that?
