We are just finishing (WI) putting in the garlic for next year. You can put it in as long as your ground is not frozen completely and you can make a hole in the dirt. Harvest is next July.

We have blankets covering a small garden, pulled the green tomatoes. The celery needs to come in next, then dehydrate it, then the last of the beets for a beet salad. Oh there were a few green onions that need to come in from under the blanket too.

blissful inspired me to go take some photos

I will try to take two beds through the winter. We have had great success with the hooped house the past three winters. Mostly have carrots, swiss chard, celery and parsley in the beds for this winters' pickings.

1/2 a kettle of beets, a pint or so of chopped green onions, a small pan of swiss chard. My salad garden is done.

My rosemary is still good outside without cover. Should I set it on the covered deck for the winter or bring inside? We are still hanging in the high 20's to 40's at night.

Sorry PF, I do not know. I've never grown rosemary before and because of lack of space elsewhere, it ended up in the hoop house

I had a rosemary bush for over 20 years. After we had a week of temperatures in the teens a few years ago (unusual in my area, zone 8b), it died. Rosemary originated growing on hillsides around the Mediterranean Sea, so I would bring it in where you are. It may drop some leaves, but it should survive the winter.

I bring my rosemary inside every winter. It seems to like that. It just keeps on growing, but a little slower. Sometimes it even blooms.
