It is cold here this morning. It didn't officially freeze, but it got pretty close. I even lit the first fire in the fireplace this morning. Every time I light a fire by myself, I am thankful that my Dad taught me well.
With the time change we had an extra hour to snuggle in front of the fire with warm vanilla milk, which has not replaced hot cocoa.
This is the time of year, when it first starts to get cold, I just can't seem to get warm. I take warm baths and carry around a cup of tea all day.
But out in the garden, the plants loving the cooler temperatures.
Kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts, lettuces, onions, leeks and other greens all love cool mornings and sunny afternoons.
One of the best things about winter gardening is no pests! We are usually fighting the cabbage worms, but not this season. Those pretty full leaves are testament to the lack of garden pests.
So far we've been having lots of fresh salads, but soon we should be able to add a few more items to the dinner table.
Anyone else growing a winter garden?
