Winter planting is in full swing

We had some warm season crops left in the front garden until yesterday partially because I was so busy leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday and partially because they were still producing and I did not want to pull them out before we got the bulk of the edible food off of them. 

We had a nice warm spell here over the weekend and that helped the last of the tomatoes to ripen but it was time to pull the plants out and get a start on our winter crops. Yesterday, I planted lettuce in the shadiest bed and pulled all of the remaining warm season crops, except for 1 cucumber out of the other beds.

The bed looks pretty empty now but I will fill it back up with cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower
