I’m Baaaaaack.

 My camera was on the blink.   Actually, it turned out to be operator error, and the sad part is, I’m still not sure what I did wrong.   It all started at my son’s graduation.  I couldn’t seem to get it to work in the low light.  But did get a few pics.  I know this isn’t about gardening, but so far my kids are about the best thing I’ve ever grown.  The graduate and his sister.

The garden is looking pretty sad right now, so it might be a good thing the camera has been on the blink.    It may have something to do with the fact that we have had a winter storm, complete with snow and temperatures around 29 degrees.  We had this same weather last year and I’m not complaining.  At least, not about the snow.  The snow covers all the dead stuff and it looks lovely.

I have covered my lettuce mix, arugula and watercress with frost covers.  That is working really well.  They are in pots, so it is easy to cover and easy to harvest.  I had a salad with fresh lettuce, arugula and watercress this week and it was wonderful!

There is still some green in the garden.  Garlic is growing well.

I also wanted to show you my carrots I harvested.  This picture was taken on Christmas eve day.  I cleaned them up and took them as crudite for our holiday snacking.  They were soooo sweet!  They are called Romeo and are small and round.

I am especially proud of these, because I have never been able to grow carrots.  These seeds came from my friend Patty.  Thanks Patty!
