Winter Garden

After much procrastination, our winter garden is finally planted.

At the end of September, the stock market fell to a record low and hubby came home early from work with several flats. Nothing like a little recession to get you in the planting mood :)

We planted hybrid cauliflower, collards (couldn't find turnip greens,) spinach, carrots (seed,) beets (seed) which mom suggested to start with a little lime in the soil, broccoli, cabbage, and english peas (seed.)

By spring, I hope to start everything from heirloom seed.

By all means, send me any suggestions you may have for our garden!

I love heirloom tomatoes and fingerling potatoes. I hope you plant some of these at springtime. I visited an organic garden in NY and learned about heirlooms. Fingerling potatoes are delicious roasted!
