Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Harvest Monday - First of 2013

Believe it or not I do have my first harvest of 2013.  Two carrots that wintered over.  We had them in a salad and they were nice and sweet.


 Here's how the rest of the vegetable garden looks.


Mesclun, bok choy and spinach will need some warmer days to green up and need some weeding.


Garlic shoots are showing.


The rest of the garden paths and beds have a prolific week growing all over them.

Warmer days are coming and it will be time to plant snow peas, lettuce, carrots, bok choy and other spring crops.  Can't wait!

See other harvest at host Daphne's Dandelions.

Amazing what a mild winter many of us are having AGAIN this year. I thought last winter was mild--but this one (for us) is even milder.

I even saw a couple of Bluebirds checking out the nestbox this morning... That is EARLY for nesting....

Crazy.... Glad you enjoyed your carrots.
Hugs,
Betsy

Nothing like winter carrots, a gardener's treat!

Those carrots are the best! It will take only a bit of pruning and weeding and those greens will be taking off like rockets when it warms up a bit.

Nice carrots! Ours were a wipe out this year! (boo!)

The rock pillar always has water around it - so its always cut off.

I wish we could grow carrots. I've never had any success.

Wow! Most of my garden is under a foot of snow and stuff in the greenhouse is flopped over playing dead in the -3 degree weather. A few more months before I get my first harvest.

What a nice surprise! I didn't get a lot of things done last fall, so just now putting in my carrots! and a very mild winter until today, it's snowing.
