Happy New Years fellow gardeners! How's your garden grow?

Not the best month for growing things but here in Va a few things are still kicking. Collards are doing well, carrots are coming in, and the cabbages are slow but shaping up. Picked most of the carrots but left a 6 ft row intact for later digging before the ground freezes up, hasn't been too cold so far.

The young Spinach is close to setting a 2nd set of true leaves now so it should go dormant soon and do well for an early Spring harvest. Wrapping up on some fruit tree pruning, just 3 apples, 1 pear, and the blueberries bushes to go. The weatherdude is hinting at possible snow here next weekend but the forecast hasn't fully jelled yet. A dry spell would be welcome after the recent record breaking rains in Dec. What ya got growing out there?
