Juicy Navel Oranges, Radicchio, Swiss Chard, Watercress, Spicy Arugula
"Leaves are turning brilliant colors
The entire landscape is new
Like Mother Nature is practicing
With her water colors just for you"
This is the first year that I planted Radicchio Palla Rossa Ashalim and I am very happy with the results. Thank you Botanical Interests for so many wonderful organic seeds!
I still have until the end of March to grow my winter veggies before I will need to use the space for my summer vegetables.
Still picking lots of Spring Onions. I continue to plant the onion sets each week, adding 6-12 bulb to the bare spots in the beds. They can be tucked in between plants just about anywhere you see an empty spot.
Grapefruit are coming along, but will need a few more months. Last year they were very small so I am hoping the heavy rains we had this year will help to give us large, juicy fruit; they look good so far.
