Purple Cauliflower!

I picked this cauliflower a few days ago.  It is one of six plants that I planted back in October.  I have two more that are just about ready to harvest.  The flavor is wonderful and the color stays even after it is cooked.  I saved half of it for eating raw in salads.  It is just beautiful!

Winter Garden Update January 2015

More photos of my winter garden.  These are again from my garden at the senior community garden that we are so lucky to have.  Our plot is 18x20, a good size for just the two of us.  I fertilized all the plants today. Sadly, I had to pull out the San Marzano tomato plant that got hit by the frost over the last few days.  Now I have that space to the right of the photo above to plant more lettuce seedling.  I started them a couple of weeks ago and they will be ready to transplant by the end of the month.  The good news is that the tomato plant is the only one I lost to the frost and this week we will be warming up again.  Monday and Tuesday will be 80 degrees!  Nights will still be cool at the mid 40's.
