Winter Garden update
Less than a month ago, I sewed seeds for rutabaga, parsnips, beets chard and 2 types of kale. Parsnips were a bust with almost none germinating. Beets were a close second for losers, with about 10 little plants. The kale, chard and Rutabagas are going gang busters. I sewed the ruta's heavily and am thinning them into my salad bowl. Baby rutabaga greens are quite yummy and tender. They have a very slight cabbage flavor at the end, which goes well with most spinach and lettuce mixes, or alone. The kale and chard will be ready to start picking soon!! I also found a forgotten kale in my other raised bed, It is covered in beautiful leaves that will be joining the rutabagas in the next few days. Such bounty!
