    Frosty, Cool Chard


                                                                   Happy New Year!!

Artichokes are tough!
It is now 2013, and things have been changing a lot in the garden. Many things are asleep to cope with the cold, low light, and overall wetter conditions of winter. There has been lots of frost this week, and that can be hard on some of our plants. However, some things are still going strong like kale, artichokes, leeks, celery, swiss chard, radishes, turnips, parsley, sorrel, and brussel sprouts.

Turnips, frosty and still going strong

Here is what is going on in the garden right now~

Frosty Lacinato Kale

 Kale is pretty strong and hardy, and can usually withstand hard frost as can some of its other Brassicae relatives such as brussel sprouts, broccoli, collards, and cabbage.

We also have some new friends in our collard greens! These were planted from seed, and are now big enough to be in their own pots. When they are old enough, we will transplant them to the outdoor garden, and voila! Delicious greens~
