Greens!


Just about the time of the latest E. coli scare, I decided to plant a winter garden. I took a picture of the greens patch every morning at breakfast time. This video shows you 45 days of growth in time-lapsed style. Now this garden is supplying us with daily delicious organic greens every day.

Okay, at first I thought this was a link to someone else's garden, then I read your blog and am mightily impressed. When are we invited over for a salad? Seriously, this is inspiring. If I had a decent plot of land to farm, that wasn't a rental, I'd be challenging you to a greens tasting. Wow!

Hi Susan, Come on over for a salad any time ...and for brussel sprouts, broccoli, and peas too. You don't need a big plot of land--just nail together some 2x8 planks to make a raised bed, fill with dirt, and sprinkle your seeds.

I'm planning on getting something together in February. Too many papers to grade before then. The orientation of our house doesn't provide the optimum sun for our available planting area, but I'm going to try anyway. The only thing I'm harvesting right now is some very tasty limes, although not enough to supply all our needs. (A stack of papers requires quite a bit of gin, you know, and plenty of lime to go with it.)

What do you suggest I plant in Feb.? I don't want to commit too much because I'm not sure if we'll be moving or not.
