State of the Garden – January 2016

It’s the end of January, and the garden is in full swing.  We’re harvesting broccoli, kale, lettuce, swiss chard, fennel, cilantro, parsley, dill and cabbages, and the final cauliflower was picked today.

Last weekend, the red potatoes were planted where the cauliflower plants used to be.

I tied string around the celery plants to help them grow more upright…they were almost laying on the ground.  I have pulled off individual stalks a few times when I needed to cook with celery, but I’m going to wait a bit before harvesting the entire plants.
