Winter mesclun, spinach and cilantro are ready for protection in the coldframe.
Beets and kohlrabi are ready for cleaning. We eat the beet greens so the whole plant is a gem for us. We left some beets in the garden with a cover and harvested many of the large ones.
I (Jennifer) used fencing to create a quick make-shift cover to last until we make time to bend the metal conduit we bought to make a sturdier mini-hoop house.
This will probably be the last of the flowering nasturtiums and calendula till next year. I harvested a fair amount of nasturtium, zinnia and marigold seeds to dry and save. I also cut quite a few of the calendula blooms to use in our soap.
The lettuce is so beautiful and is feeding us daily.
The trees are really starting to turn in central Ohio...
and the gourds are ready for display!
We grow all this food to cook, of course. The recent Vegetarian Times had a tasty potpie recipe we made this week. YUM. The perfect food for a cold, rainy day.
