This is what our winter veggie gardens look like in the spring as some plants that were not harvested, like arugula and carrot, go to flower to attract beneficial insects to control pests. We usually have to cut in spaces for our summer crops like tomatoes and squash. Cut back all the winter crops after the seed has set and can be collected or spread over the garden to come up next winter.
