I didn't get a winter garden going this year (renos won out), but I did leave a few things in the garden, mainly to see how they would do.
Did you know rabbits like leeks??
Rabbits also like celery.
Rabbits also like my currant bushes :(
I don't know what I was thinking, but I neglected to protect my fruit bushes from the rascally varmints. The got the grape vines too :((

And the carrots. Sigh. If I want to store more things right in the garden, I'll need to come up with something to keep the critters out.
|Ignore the weeds, focus on the carrot - just like the rabbits did|
But, the rabbits don't like kale and collards!
|Kale - anyone know the variety? The one problem with variety packs, I don't remember what is what!|
The beets are doing well too. And they are HUGE. The rabbits are nibbling on the leaves, but not the roots. I purposely left some of the 3-Root Grex beets in the ground, to see if I could over-winter them and get seed this coming summer. If not, no big loss, but I am interested in figuring out seed saving for biennial species.
