|Greens and turnips|
With very few pests to damage them, our winter crops often thrive better than the summer and fall ones. The only real threat to our winter greens is drought, which we have been experiencing this year. Recent rains are strengthening our plants and causing an abundance of growth and glory.
This week our family has picked four heads of cabbage, four heads of broccoli, four bunches of turnips and daily gleanings of lettuce, kale, chard and onions. With our current freezer full of venison and poultry, side dishes of our harvest and daily egg gatherings our family is eating very well.
Our farm focus for this Friday is simple garden maintenance. Light weeding, extra mulch, and harvesting are on the to-do list for today. Thanks for joining us today....we're off to tend the veggies!
