|My collards, ready for a picking|

This bed has seen better days. The deer and voles have cleaned out all of the beets that were in the middle. The voles and George have decimated the radishes. I will sorely miss that crop. The Beedy's Camden kale over near the right side is doing well, having been harvested heavily yesterday. Finally, the thick stem chinese mustard on the far right is doing really well, and needs a heavy picking.
Many of the egyptian walking onions above are yellowing a bit. I suppose that has to do with the cooler temperatures, though they should do fine if left alone. They will recover quickly in the spring.
This arugula plant is still growing nicely in this cold weather, allowing for some limited harvesting. The garlic plants on both sides are also growing slowly. Right now you want root growth in garlic rather than stem growth. I hope to mulch this bed soon with a couple of inches of leaf mold.
