The tops are starting to swell on some of them, so perhaps in a few weeks I'll be able to pull them up and roast them. I've also got beets, carrots and chard in my little garden plot. All are coming along nicely, and hopefully I'll have a nice root vegetable harvest by the end of February.
Up on the deck, I'm growing peas. The variety I picked are dwarf, so they should do well in pots or in the ground. I have a few in both places. Fresh peas are so delicious. I wish they would grow a little faster!
I also have chard in one pot, and some brussels sprouts seedlings slowly getting bigger and bigger. Oh, and some onions. Onions take a long time, so I started them about a month ago in small pots and will transplant them into the garden this spring once I pull the turnips and beets.
My arugula has been extremely happy in the cool weather. I've got several pots of it growing on the deck at the moment. I really like growing my own greens. They spoil so quickly in the fridge, so to be able to step outside and cut some fresh arugula for a salad or sandwich right when I need it has been great. My parsley, cilantro and chives are also quite happy, as you can see.
When the chickens grow up, I will be able to feed them weeds and bugs from the garden. And, in exchange, they can provide me with some excellent fertilizer. Of course, I'll probably need to fence in my garden plot so they don't gobble up my veggies when we let them wander the back yard.
