January Surprise!

The snow melted and what do you suppose I found underneath?!

Enough to make a salad with…and there’s more out there. I saw some kale and red beets…maybe even some chard.

Don’t you love gardening?!

July’s challenge was about winter gardening and seed saving. Challenges included:

1. Winter gardening

2. Planting carrots for the fall/winter

3. Saving seeds

I missed the deadline for the link-up to the website (here if you want to check out what others have done), but here’s what I’ve done:

1. Winter gardening

Kale and broccoli for transplanting in a few weeks.

Kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts and some herbs for indoors.

 

I reseeded my polyculture beds with greens and other cold weather veggies.

Lettuce and arugula for the fall inside my bean tepee.

 

2. Carrot bed

Carrots and a few other goodies seeds and (hopefully) germinating. The sticks etc are to keep the cats out.

3. Saving seeds

I have saved some chive seeds and plan to try to get some lettuce seeds. I’ve let some of it bolt and I’m waiting for seeds to set. I also plan to save tomato, pepper and cucumber seeds, but I am afraid some are hybrid, so we’ll see. The corn is definitely a saver as are beans.

August challenge is out – preserving food. Whew, I have a head start on that one!!

Reason #1

Fresh salad for dinner last night. In January!

Corn salad looking green and yummy!

LOTS of arugula!

I should have taken a photo of the salad itself looking all yummy with feta and chick peas and tomato on top of those lovely greens, but I was too hungry and ate it right away 😉

A couple  more garden photos of my fresh herb supply:

Sage

 

Rosemary

Reason #2

Going outside to harvest it.

Yesterday's sunset

Of course it’s like 4:30 in the afternoon, still way too early for sunset to my mind, but thankfully days are getting noticeably longer!

Anything to eat in your garden?
