truth be told, I ate radicchio, kale, collard and bok choi through the
winter. I just finished everything (the last bucket was harvested one
week ago) and now I am eating (grazing) smaller, come-again green
leaves from heads harvested in november. Michigan under a tunnel is not
so bad, the garlic under the tunnels is one foot high whereas the one
outside is just pushing out. The only problem is when it stays well
below freezing through the weekend, and I can not harvest veggies
unless they are unfrozen. This year it never happened though.
so don't be so smug. We have relatively few pests compared to the
South, and the summers are pleasant.
