Harvest Monday 2/7-2/13 2012

Lil' guy likes to hold the basket.
We pulled more radishes (5 of them), a bunch of kale and some spinach. Next year I hope to be able to plant a much larger amount of everything for our fall/winter garden. We still have been able to harvest something every week but I would like to be able to harvest a lot more every week. I think this week we will finally be able to harvest a few purple snap peas!

Love your garden helper. Holders of baskets are very important to the efficient garden harvest operations. :D

Your list of harvest items sounds like you are getting quite a lot for this early in the year - so you must have done well with your winter plantings.

Your helper looks very cute but I suspect he could also be trouble....I have a cute one and he is so apologies for the assumption if yours is an angel. We have a mild climate so we get a lot out of our winter garden, but I'm always amazed by how much you guys get.

We planted everything for our fall/winter garden to late and were lucky that it over wintered. Gnar is pretty good at helping but he is a little boy...who likes it get into trouble. :) he really like weeding...even if there are no weeds.
