Very nice thread, Alex...beautiful indeed. Thank you for sharing the change of seasons; please remember to re-post early this spring when you get things going again.

Very nice snow peas' row! Wow. That's a lot, and a good thing if you like snow peas as much as I do. Excellent and they look so healthy.

I am impressed with your brussel sprouts. Strong main trunks and lots of pretty heads coming out. I've tried them for 2 years now with no success~ my main stalks start out green and thick, but then they thin out and the heads never really develop. Any tips you can offer? Been to the county extension and had both my lawn and garden soil analyzed (do that every year) and it's fine. I put the sprouts where I had cucumbers during the summer one year, and tomatoes the other. Could that be an issue?

Anyway, thanks for sharing the great pictures of your garden. Very nice to look at.

Great post Alex. And nice looking dirt! Compost can be pretty expensive so it is definitely a great (and greener) idea to compost your own.
Cover crop is coming along nicely, this is my first time doing one and it's there-didn't even think the seeds germinated since it is slow bolting but finally getting a nice solid green cover.

You should offer tours and classes about gardening because you have one hell of a green thumb!
