Winter greens

The collards, kale and spinach have been fantastic in this mild winter.  The collards, touched by frost, are sweet and tender; the spinach just keeps growing.  And I haven't even yet harvested much chard or beet greens, as of yet.  I hopefully put some broccoli transplants in -- it'll probably be too warm this spring for them.  But I'll also put some sugar snap peas in -- after the rain in the next couple of days.  Peas are always a crop that "hope" is a factor.

The collards and kale are starting to bolt, so I'm harvesting them, we're cooking and eating them, and some of the harvest is going to the freezer.  They're delicious.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
