Our vegetable patch is an example. We sow winter vegetables in August, eat them well into late Spring, pull out what has gone over or hasn't worked well and make room for spring plantings. Mixed up with annual veg are self seeding salads, a few perennial veg that have not been transplanted to the forest garden, green manures and as many flowers as nature wishes to provide.
