2 December 2012 Weekly Update

The pickings this week consisted of just 3 carrots to be sliced into salads.  The smallest carrot was accidentally pulled up while we were weeding.
Carrots!

Carrots!

We got out and did quite a bit of weeding on Sunday and removed many of the leaves that had fallen into the boxes in which we’re growing something.  It was a glorious day – mid 60’s; not too hot, not too cold.  We also removed all of the covers as temperatures are forecast to be relatively warm all this week.  Additionally, we gave everything a good drink.
We have quite a bit of harvestable cilantro but no need for it this week so hopefully it’ll hang on another week or so.  The two small broccoli heads have grown in size only a little this past week.  We also have lots of lettuce – I may need to cut some to take into work for sharing.  I’ve been taking salads for lunch quite often the past 3 weeks in an attempt to consume it all but you can only eat so many salads…

All in all, things are fairly slow in the garden.  It’s nice to have a bit of a break!

    Enjoy the break! I know I am trying to take advantage of this down time to get to other projects I have been wanting to do. Soon it will be time to begin seeds etc., but for now it is nice just to enjoy the fruits of our previous hard work.
