1/5/16 Post #2
It's a new year and with it comes some lovely cool weather and the perfect chance to get outside and garden! Don't worry though, it shouldn't get too cold for our vegetable beauties :)
I was swept up in the holiday craziness with family over and lots to do, but I have definitely been tending our Deering Bay garden every weekend: feeding, trimming, planting, and weeding it.
It looks like the major harvest for the season this year will be the end of February and March.
Particularly, the Radicchio and the Tomatoes are looking really good. Radicchio looks like a purple cabbage, but it has a mild spicy taste and it will be ready to pick when the center heads are done forming.
We've also now got Arugula, Jericho lettuce, Oakleaf Lettuce, Gourmet Greens Lettuce, two different types of Radishes, and some Cabbages growing, and I will be transplanting the carrot seedlings into larger pots very soon.
I will be working in the garden this coming Saturday morning if anyone wants to stop by and say hi :) And hopefully it won't rain too hard in the morning!
