    This is January, what is your garden doing being so prolific in January? Fantastic!

      Wet and warm, relatively speaking, but a cold snap coming in for a few days- low – mid 20s but sunny (finally again) during the day.
      My experience is that the stuff that can take a frost will grow all winter as long as it gets in the ground early while the days are still adequately long. Short days and cold ground = s-l-o-w growth, near dormancy for a couple months, but everything keeps better “on the stump” thank it does in the fridge or cellar.

      Glad you stopped by Margaret!

      I had to snip a little broccoli and spinach before the polar express hits.
      (I didn’t post the rutabagas that were with them.)

    Gardening at night?
    Your sister said that you’re too young…………….they should know, they’ve been there twice.

      I can assure you that there was no “gardening at night” in the context of what it meant in that song. 😉
