Hello everyone. I haven’t posted since last fall because I decided to take the winter off from blogging. It was good to take a break, but it is also good to be back! As you can see from above, I’ve started my first batch of seedlings. I’ve planted ‘Spring Mix’ lettuce, ‘Lacinato’ kale, ‘Rosette’ bok choy tatsoi, and Wong Bok Chinese cabbage. In addition, I’ll be following the planting directions of Laura at The Modern Victory Garden. I really look to Laura as my gardening mentor. If you are local to the Pacific Northwest, I suggest you start reading her blog. You’ll have a much better garden for doing so.
The other thing I wanted to share is that even though it is winter, we still have edibles in our garden. Last week, I harvested a bunch of sage leaves for an Italian bean dish I was cooking. Today, I harvested a bunch of carrots. They have held up well over the winter and have a really nice sweet taste. The kids gobbled them up.
Here’s to great gardening in 2011!
