Things are starting to look up for my winter garden...finally! (I think the rabbits feasted until their little tummies were full because they're not bothering things as much.)
We've already finished up with the radishes they left us.
The leftover squash and zucchini seeds we threw out for a lark have turned out to be pretty hardy. I did shell out for a poly-tunnel to protect them after they had survived several light freezes. Its the first time I've ever used a poly-tunnel and it is a quite handy contraption.
Here are the squash all snug in their little tunnel house. We've got quite a bit of squash coming on...
What a bright sunshiny sight in winter!
The turnips are delicious. Here's one peeking out of the dirt.
The garlic has been super easy so far.
Carrot tops making a come back.
Rhubarb has turned out to be ridiculously easy to grow. However, I recently read somewhere that the leaves and roots are toxic to humans and animals and you have to know exactly when to harvest or the stalks get contaminated also, so now I'm a little leery of it.
Black-seeded Simpson lettuce is getting bigger now that the rabbits have grown tired of its tasty leaves. Maybe we'll get to sample some soon!
My roadrunner stopped by to see if any bugs were in my turnips and beet greens.
He fluffed up when he spotted me and trotted off in a huff...guess I ruined his plan for a nice quiet snack.
