Dinner from the Winter Garden

Ahh, my first blog post! 

I just came in from the garden with an armload of kale, broccoli and carrots.  They were all planted last summer for harvest through the winter and early spring.  Steamed Purple Sprouting broccoli and freshly pulled carrots for dinner tonight!  Not very Irish, but we’ll be celebrating St. Paddy’s tomorrow with a colcannon of the last of 2011’s potatoes and the kale I just picked. 

Harvesting the last of the over-wintered crops makes room for the new plants in the greenhouse waiting their turn to get into the garden.  I’m a little later than usual this year, but the broccoli, cauliflower, Bok Choi and cabbage will be ready in a couple weeks.  The tomatoes will be going in under a low tunnel cloche soon after that.
