As posted earlier, our fall garden was a failure. It was just too hot, dry and buggy when all the tender, young plants needed to get their start in the garden. However, we did have a few lettuce and spinach plants under row covers until late December when we decided the fall garden was a lost cause and pulled off the row covers. It didn't take long for the deer to discover the various weeds that thrived under the row covers' protection. This does is enjoying a winter treat. (Sorry about all the clutter in this photo. We obviously haven't gotten around to our fall garden clean up yet.)
