By late yesterday morning all the snow had melted and my garden was one big soupy mess. Except of course for the chard. True, all the outer leaves had died a horrible death, but take a look at the center of the plant. It’s alive and kickin’. Swiss chard is the Energizer Bunny of the vegetable garden… it just keeps growing, and growing and growing. No matter what. You can’t kill it.
And the chives, well, they’re hanging in there too. I planted a few packets of chive seeds about 3 months ago and so far so good. I’m hoping my next summer I’ll have a nice hearty row of chive plants.
The carrots though, I didn’t want to leave those in the ground all winter because I didn’t have any hay to cover them with and I was afraid if I left them there until spring, they might freeze up on me and turn to mush.
So I harvested all of them.
What a good looking harvest! Homegrown carrots, beets and turnips. Heck yeah!
How is YOUR garden doing these days? Still harvesting? Or are you done for the year?
