|I found this forgotten Black Spanish radish in the garden.|
I think I'm too scared to eat it though - it's almost 3 inches
across and will be VERY VERY spicy!
I've been out working in the garden for the past few days, trying to tie up loose ends (and pull random weeds!) before the weather bomb. It looks like today is the last mild day, and I've still got plenty to do like deep mulch the root/stem crops and put up a few mini hoop tunnels in preparation for the (sniff, sniff) snow.
However, I thought I'd first share some photos I took yesterday - Nov 12 - when it was warm enough to work outside in a t-shirt!
Have you wrapped up your winter garden yet?
|I've got about 20 celeriac ready for deep mulching.|
Most about about 4 to 6 inches across.
|Baby beets! Steamed these last night - like candy!|
|There are still some random blooms for the late bees. This|
borage flower was pure perfection.
|Plenty of calendula still in bloom. The nasturtiums|
gave up last week, but these cheerful orange blooms
fill the gap nicely.
|Can't forget about 'Peppermint Stick' swiss chard!|
Seriously a knockout in the garden spring through winter!
|I also still have hedges of sweet alyssum. It|
just keeps going and going - even under
mini hoop tunnels.
