Over wintering veg

This year we tried overwintering oriental veg. The garden is in a cold spot, in a valley around 270M ASL open to the East. It has been cold with some sharp frosts in November. I am always doubtful about leaving any crops in the ground without protection but the oriental veg has survived.

Tonight, we used some Pak Choy leaves in a stir fry. We also tried some Wong Bok raw; the thick stems were delicious with the flavour changing as it was eaten. There are plenty more to harvest so they should last into March.

There will definitely be more next year with maybe some protected cropping from cloches  to give us all year round greens.
