The winter garden

Although we've passed the solstice and the days are getting longer and the soil (supposedly) warmer, there's not much growing in my garden right now. I've pulled out the carrots and dug up the remaining scraps of silverbeet to give to the chooks. The broad beans and garlic are popping up but months away from eating. I have planted radish and spinach that can be sown in winter. In the greenhouse, there is broccoli growing and I hope to be eating it soon, but I'm not sure that last weekend's coating of snow did much to help it along.
