Whether you like to get outdoors a bit each day despite the weather, or you just don't care to brave icy roads searching for expensive fresh produce, growing your own crops on into winter definitely has its benefits.

I tip my hat to you.

It'll be interesting to see how those Brussels sprouts fared during the unusually cold (-14, with -45 wind-chills) and snowy period we've just experienced. They're resting under a couple of feet of snow right now but the path is dug to within 15 feet of them, so maybe I'll get it finished today.
