    Default Overwintered vegetables

    Last fall, I covered a few of my raised beds with about 6 inches of shredded leaves. The beds have PVC hoops over them, and are covered with plastic. Today I opened them up, pulled away the leaves, and found some wonderful rutabagas, parsnips, and carrots. The carrots are the crispest, sweetest carrots I think I've ever eaten! What have the rest of you overwintered successfully?

    I've left onions for years and they seam to be fine. I left some carrots last year, I'll see what I have in a month or so (still have 3'-4' of snow cover on the beds). I've heard they wouldn't be good, it's good to see someone had good luck.

    if there is enough mulch/snow kale will make it.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.
