I’m hosting the Tuesday Garden Party this week. While there isn’t much going on in my garden just yet, I did harvest a few items that wintered over.
I took advantage of the great weather we had a few weeks ago and cleaned up the garden beds. They weren’t too bad at all. I had left a few carrots and green onions and leeks in the garden to winter over. I harvested them a couple of weeks ago.
We ended up with about 5 pounds of baby carrots. Yes, 5 pounds, I would have never guessed there was that many still growing, but I just kept finding more and more. I guess I will find out if I missed any soon.
I was really surprised that the leeks made it through the two freezes we had. Our winter has been fairly mild this year, the leeks froze a couple of times, but they looked great when I harvested them. The green onions didn’t fair so well and broke apart when I tried to harvest them. Into the compost they went.
I noticed I have one lone head of lettuce that survived the winter and my chives are already sprouting up along with a few daffodils in our flower beds.
