Fall Garden - Not Much Left

The sleeping bed for winter where the tomatoes, potatoes, beans, eggplant, and butternut squash were growing this summer. Swiss Chard and spinach. These will survive a couple more light frosts. I initially was going to cover this entire row for the winter, but have since changed my mind. Just not sure I plan to eat swiss chard all winter (I'm not crazy over it).

This is raddicchio ready to cover for the winter. It too will survive some light frosts; but come a hard freeze, a storm window will go over the straw bales.
My pride and joy to eat all winter -- carrots and spinach. This spot is in a south location with the brick wall protecting it. Once it freezes, I'll cover it with storm windows and if all goes as planned, I'll be eating fresh carrots and spinach all winter.

Kale! Yuk. But I can't pull it 'cause its SO nutritious. One of the top 10 super foods in the world.
