Friday PhotoEssay

I think most of the vegetables in the garden didn’t mind the cold much, and are very appreciative of the return of some sunshine! I know I’m glad the sun has returned, at least for a few days.The resilience of plants is always surprising.

This winter wheat was grown for a 4-H banquet centerpiece, and then was unceremoniously dumped into the compost bin. It seems quite content with its lot, even though it is going to get ground up and mixed into the compost this afternoon.

This salad mix (lots of mustard and choy) and the lettuce next to it seem none the worse for the little bit of frost earlier this week. I think I may have a harvest to report by next Monday. Yum!

In case you couldn’t tell from all the labels, this is the Swiss Chard.

Hmm…maybe this is the wrong picture to end on. This is some tiny, seedling henbit that is growing in the bed out by the lattice wall. I guess henbit is our winter crop for that garden!

Have a great weekend!
