I think it’s kind of funny how our backyard garden has sprung to life again with all the cold weather we have been having. The garden boxes are full of green goodness and are chugging right along.
The latest vegetables to emerge are cauliflower and winter beets. I’m still not sure if we will be eating homegrown beets this Thanksgiving, but some cauliflower hummus will be on the menu, that’s for sure.
Here are a few pictures of the vegetables currently growing within the backyard garden boxes.
Pretty stinkin’ awesome for November if you ask me.
So even though the beans and squash are long gone…
and the potatoes have all been harvested,
There is still plenty of kale, Swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage to eat. And with a bit of luck we’ll have Brussels sprouts, beets and carrots to harvest here pretty soon as well.
Life is good.
P.S. Do YOU have anything left growing in your garden?
