Winter harvest

Hi! I'm still here, still gardening, just crazy busy. Here's a peek at what I harvested this weekend.
Winter 2012 harvest
What do we have here? Packman broccoli side shoots (the heads eaten last week), Sugar Snap peas (producing like a BOSS), Bloomsdale spinach (leaves few and far between) and three lettuces: Garnet Rose, Red Oakleaf and Baby Romaine. More soon!

  1. You have a lot there. Good going....

  2. Hi Caroline - how do you trellis up the snap peas? I have some seedlings planted - they're about a foot high and of course not strong enough to stand on their own. I need to figure out how to stake these little guys up so mine start produciing like a BOSS!!!

  3. Oooh, so pretty and yummy looking! Alas, I'm not a great veggie gardener, but I admire good veggie gardeners!

  4. oh yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about!

  5. Chris, my pea trellis is sorely lacking. I'm using four-foot tall square tomato cages and the peas have completely outgrown the cage, overflowing and trailing down the sides! I have the top heavy vines propped up on some hoops in the beds. It's a mess but the vines are producing like crazy. I could use six or eight foot trellises.

    1. They are good. Sweet and crisp. We've had snap peas as a side dish every week for the past month.
