The weather has officially turned to from Fall to Winter despite what the calendar says.
The chard has seen their last days and did not make it through the frost we have been having. I pulled them out and used their leaves along with the harvested leek tops to insulate the soil around the leeks still in the ground. I then piled old leaves on top of the parsnips. Hopefully both of these efforts will keep the soil from freezing and allow me to harvest through the winter.
