January Garden

The garden is doing splendidly! My boys have been a great help again this year. We’ve picked cabbage twice; this is the first harvest—30 heads! We made 110 pounds of sourkraut that day, more than we need for the year. It took only about 4 hours from picking the cabbage to finishing the cleanup.


Another day I picked a bushel and a half of peas. It was a lovely day to sit under a tree to shell them.


Little Miss loves to eat peas!


Mr. Intellectual has his own beautiful garden at the edge of the big garden. Here is Mr. Imagination showing the size of his brother’s sunflowers and corn.


This is our corn and pumpkins, with cabbage just beyond, and potatoes on the other side of that.


Little Miss likes zucchini, too!


Mr. Intellectual has been harvesting dandelion roots as well, and making them into “coffee”. He looked up directions and figured out how to roast them. Yum!

    Wow, that is a lot of cabbage! I was just reading an article about “dandelion coffee.” I would enjoy trying that, but I have a blanket of snow covering my yard so I guess I’ll have to wait a few months. 🙂
