The mild weather we have been having has allowed our fall vegetable garden to continue providing
us with fresh produce. This morning, my husband braved some cold conditions in order to pull some turnips, mustard greens, kale, lettuce, and field cress, along with some arugula. I have tried to capture the beauty of this harvest with these pictures. If the weather forecast is correct, we will have low temperatures in the high teens at the early part of next week, and I fear that will be the end of the fall garden. In the spring, my husband will turn the greens remaining over into the soil, giving a bit of enrichment to our garden spot, which is largely clay.
We have already enjoyed the lettuce in a salad today, and we will prepare the greens and turnips on New Year's Day. They will go well with the traditional black-eye peas that we have on the first day of the year. I will post about that on New Year's Day!
Tomorrow - Christmas Memories.
