It's really growing!
I think I have mentioned it before, but our fall/winter so far have been terrible weather-wise for growing fall stuff, even though it was 28º this morning, Saturday it was 70º! I had all but given up on my lettuces ever sprouting, but we finally have liftoff!
As long as it doesn't warm up and bake them to death again we just might get half a salad for one person...
The rest of the garden is an absolute mess. I'm coming out of the funk I've been in and starting to look forward to cool days spent working on cleaning it all up out there. Things are growing despite my inattentiveness, however...
The scallions above I was too lazy to pull, but now we are enjoying pulling up nice sized onions from them :)
Did somebody say it's January? You'd never know it from all the DILL sprouting from fallen seed! If I had known it was going to be so warm I would have tried winter cukes LOL... I can never seem to time that dill with the cukes... or the cilantro with the tomatoes for that matter.
And this? I don't even remember what it is, Texas something or other... citrus outside in January?!
Speaking of messes... how is everyone doing on all the home canning consumption? I bet I win for messiest cabinet! The canning supplies were all so neat and orderly in September, now everytime I do dishes I am just flinging empty jars and lids into there, I think I better organize it before I have broken glass to pick up!
As far as New Year's Resolutions go, I've got nothing spectacular. I have barely even had time to register that it's a new year yet. I'm thinking the usual, finances, budgeting, garden, family time... rinse and repeat - Happy New Year!
