This may well be my last Harvest Monday contribution until the first spring harvest comes along. I don't have a cold frame set-up at this point and the nights have been freezing pretty regularly now. Even my kale is about at the end of the road for the year. Today I managed to harvest about a pound of marble sized brussels sprouts and a handful of wilted kale, plus three baby carrots.
We are now entering into the dreaming time of year. Too early to start any plants for the next garden, but not too early to dream about future plans. I still haven't dug that last 3 foot by 3 foot bit of growing bed! Last week was perfect weather for it but after Thanksgiving I just got bitten by the lazy bug and had about as much ambition as a slug...wait, that may be a poor simile, since the slugs in my garden are ambitious enough to be quite destructive...in any case, nothing got done at all. I did however order an early Christmas present for myself, a heating mat to start seeds on. I've always managed well enough without one, but it does seem like something that will speed some of my slow-sprouting seeds along.
Tomorrow we may get snow, so bring on those garden dreams!
