Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I wrote all about how it was getting cold here and the down and wool were in use, the weather started heating up. It’s strange this warm weather, with a warm, leaf blowing wind. Both neighbors and strangers have greeted us this past weekend with a ‘Incredible weather, isn’t it? It’s earthquake weather.’ Luckily no earthquakes yet but the garden is happy with this warm sunshine.
We have all sorts of things starting up out there, lettuce, chinese mustard, dinosaur kale (oh boy, the boys are super excited about that)….
….broccoli raab, spinach, snow peas….
…and shelling peas, watermelon radishes, regular radishes, cilantro, radiccio, treviso, diakon radishes, leeks and a few other goodies which are escaping our mind right now.
Our garden in late summer/early fall always looks so dry and brown as the squash and watermelon vines die and wither away, that its refreshing to see some bright green popping back up out there.
What’s growing in your garden?
