A Note from Niki - As an obsessive veggie gardener, I'm thrilled that we are able to harvest year-round from our 2000 square foot plot. We're in zone 5b/6, but winters can be long and harsh. Therefore, I'm always on the hunt for a wider variety of cold tolerant crops for our winter cold frames and mini hoop tunnels - mache, mizuna, mustards, claytonia, carrots and more. It gives me a deep sense of satisfaction to be able to harvest a bounty of food in the middle of winter and be able to offer homegrown organic veggies to my family.
