For me, winter gardening has been all about leafy greens, I found that these do extremely well in our very cold winter! Things like Kale, spinach, rocket, Swiss chard, parsley, cilantro, carrots, mustard, and lettuce did really well! On the other hand, a lot of plants suffered from the cold nights, like tomatoes. If you had success with tomatoes this season, you're one lucky gardener! Tomatoes love sun and warmth, and there's been too little of both to keep tomatoes going. Basil plants suffered from the lack of sunshine too, this resulted in small leaves and premature bolting.
