We are also having a stupidly mild winter, there is usually nothing in at this time of the year except lettuce and over wintering alliums. We are still getting carrots, beets, celery, kale, sprouts, cabbage, psb, herbs including chives and parsley.

No, rain and wind doesn't bother me too much as I grow just about everything under cover.
I have 2 tunnels, 2 greenhouses (soon to be three) and a conservatory.
I gave up trying to beat the elements years ago.

I'll let you know when we get one. :lol:

Still have kale, some brussels, perpetual spinach, winter lettuces in the greenhouse and we have 3 rows of potatoes to dig when the rain stops and the ground dries out a bit. Some spuds have regenerated with the mild conditions but will no doubt die off as soon as we get the 1st heavy frost

We still have two stalks of sprouts - can't bring myself to pick them but I expect I'll have to soon.
