Snowy blanket – Winter Vegetable Garden

January 13, 2010

Winter Vegetable GardenI know that a layer of snow is supposed to act as a good insulating blanket but this is ridiculous!  We did manage to dig up a few parsnips and leeks a couple of days ago (which tasted delicious) but it may be a while before we try the savoy cabbages!  Feeling sorry for the purple sprouting broccoli this year…first the caterpillars and now this!

This photo was taken this morning when the rest of the country seems to be talking about a big thaw…. ordinarily there would be three vegetable beds in this picture still containing PSB, spinach, chard and parsnips.
