Yesterday, garbed in rain gear, unfortunately not my rain overalls, I joyfully picked a huge box of veggies for a CSA client.
Artichokes, purple onions, acorn squash, yukon gold potatoes, hard neck garlic, mizuna, red russian kale, rainbow swiss chard, bull’s blood beets, broccoli.
It really felt like Thanksgiving.
Soaking wet , both wood fireplaces going in our cozy house. Maybe we do get to relax at this time of year even in California. Although ever the optimist I still planted a bed of spinach , right on top of where I have red potatoes started. I wonder how that will do?
I still haven’t harvested the Christmas Limas. The bean pod is still green . Anyone out there know whether they’ll dry on the vine? Even in the rain ? Hum , so many questions , so much to learn about this marvelous world of plants.
