Wordless Wednesday: January Garden Goodies

I know parts of the country are bracing for the Arctic Blast, but here in SoCal, we’re harvesting veggies. I’m not bragging, really. Part of me wishes our soil had the break of winter, but it’s not our time. We keep going.

So for those who need a little hope for the impending springtime, here’s some inspiration to get you through the rest of winter. Spring is coming!

Signs of Spring

Borage is feeding bees this winter
Bees explore arugula flowers all over the yard.
Our artichoke hasn’t started sending up chokes yet, but it won’t be long.

Garden Goodies

Navel oranges have been ripe since December. Good eating from the front yard orchard.
Our Parsnips, turnips, radishes, and carrots are growing strong.
The lettuce patch is providing winter salads.
One row of potatoes are growing strong. Another row is still emerging and we have one left to plant.

Winter Harvests

It’s time for all the radish recipes we love to make over winter. Find our recipes here.
The kale bed is giving the gift of cool-season greens all winter. The newest variety we grew this year is Purple Moon
Believe it or not, our Downy mildew resistant basil is still going. We’re making batches of pesto for the freezer. Find the recipe in Gardening for Geeks.
Mittens inspects the camera.

If you need something to get you through winter, I highly recommend Garden Variety. It did the trick for so many people in 2022 and 2023.
