I need to pinch myself. Is it really the end of November and I just ate a fresh salad from my garden? Or maybe I should kick myself for not planting a fall/winter garden sooner!
This week in the garden I pulled some turnips that I roasted. The turnip greens are sitting in the fridge awaiting that fabulous recipe that's going to make me love them!
I cut some lettuce for salad- it's a mix of green leaf, romaine and a mesclun mix. I'm so use to my lettuce getting bitter that I nibble the ends before adding. Very nice to have bitter free lettuce! And yes, the strawberries are still producing at the end of November.
I also pulled the first radishes from the fall garden.
I think fall/ winter gardening is now my favorite- no 100 degree weather, 100% humidity, mosquitoes, chiggers, overabundant pests or rampant weeds!
