Winter Harvest

Last night I picked these goodies from my raised beds.


Arugula, Cilantro, Green Leaf Lettuce, Green Onions, Oak Leaf Lettuce, Red Leaf Lettuce, Sorrel, Spinach, and Watercress.  Beets are still too small to pull.  I have however been cutting a few of their leaves from the outer edges to steam for beet greens.

 
I had harvested many of these same crops for Thanksgiving dinner.  I am surprised that more was ready so soon after picking them.  We did have some nice rain around Thanksgiving and then last week we had temperatures in the high 80's and even one day reached up to 91!  Gotta love Southern California.  A gardener's paradise.

  2. LVL, oh my, I don't think I could live where I would not be able to garden year round. Of course, I only have four small raised beds for veggie gardening. My herb garden is only 14 x 14 or so. The hummingbird and butterfly gardens take care of themselves for the most part.
