First week in February (how did that happen?) and the Danvers half long carrots are fattening up. I'm going to spend some time today gluing more carrot "mats" a la Annie's Granny, and then I'm going to fill up another half bed with them later. I'm greatly enjoying them and they're such a slow-growing crop that it pays to be right on top when it's sowing time.
Red Ursa kale is champion this spring. No pests, no powdery mildew, and tasty.
My son helped me harvest spinach. It doesn't taste awful if you add garlic to it, just meh. The citrus just keeps coming -- these are limes. And the chickens are just laying like there's no such thing as winter. Go figure. I'm not complaining; it's great.
First handful of "Alaska" peas. I did get one "Canoe," and both the pod and the peas were bigger. I may plant many more of that variety in years to come. But with stronger climbing supports!
There were the usual "handsfuls" of salads -- just enough to go inside and eat.
So everything is just sort of holding steady. We're going to get more rain, I think, starting tomorrow, so I had better do any wandering around I'm going to do today.
