Garden Refresh

I know I have said it before, but I LOVE MY GARDEN!

I haven't been able to spend a lot of time messing with it lately, but today, I took quite a bit of time. First, I needed to pull out a few things that succumbed to the frost.

Then, I really had quite a lot ready to harvest. So I pulled that all out. And then I was ready to plant some new seeds. I am planting quite a bit now and then again towards the end of February. If I have any room left, that is. I have a little garden, but it is mighty!

So here are the carrots and lettuce I harvested today.

And my great bok choy, before I harvested all of it.

My Spinach patch. I was able to just harvest the biggest leaves and leave it in to continue to let it grow.

My celery, I left in for a while too. I am excited to try it. This is the first time I have grown it.

My Swiss chard grew mighty, colorful and delicious.

So this is organizing central. I was planning what I would plant now and what later. Today I put in 2 variety of tomatoes, beets, lettuce, radishes, scallions, peppers, peas, chives, cilantro, dill, eggplant, more spinach, frisee and nasturtiums. All from seed. We will see if the garden survives the depredations of my pets. They always take a toll. But I love growing and eating it all! I still have cabbage that is pretty young and growing out there too.

You have an amazing garden! I bet that mighty little garden is a lot of work! We have an organics coop here and so each week I get a box loaded with all the yummy stuff you have in your pictures. How lucky you are to be able to grow it all yourself. Now I know who to go to when I need a recipe!
