Four Season Fail
I tried a little experiment with 4 season gardening this winter. Of course, just my luck, it's the coldest winter in 25 years. So everything died, even the mache which I had the highest hopes for. Below you can see a pic of the disaster under my rowcovers as of today. One bed was filled with assorted greens, and the other was carrots and turnips.
I'm a bit worried about leaving the dead plants under there (at least until it gets warmer). I really don't feel like digging up the root veggies from the frozen ground. Will it harm the soil for next season? Any suggestions on the best way for me to clean these up?
