Last photos of 2009

Teeny weeny broccoli heads are starting to appear on the Packman broccoli plants.

Alas, no signs of Snowball cauliflower or Brussels sprouts yet.

I picked the first Easter Egg II radish today. I wonder if it would have rounded out if I'd left it in the ground for another few days.

It was sweet and crisp, with a mild peppery bite. I immediately planted more.

The Detroit Dark Red beets are coming along. I thinned them out significantly a few days ago, and saved the thinned seedlings for salad.

I have to be careful and not plant too many. I suspect Jack will eat nary a one.

I was happy to see a few sprigs of Greek oregano survived. It's lovely in Greek salad dressing and on pizza. I thought I'd lost all of it in the freeze. It should spread in the spring and summer.

That's it for 2009. Looking forward to more gardening adventures in 2010!
