What’s New in my Garden: December 2014

Hello from my backyard food garden!

 

The vegetables are growing well in spite of the abnormally dry weather we have had over the past six weeks. I harvested my first plantings of beans and replanted the space with nailon (an Asian green), green stem bok choi, white stem bok choi, spicy Asian mustard greens and kohlrabi. These are growing with the carrots, red potatoes, snap peas and broccoli that are further along. Below are some pictures of other things I am growing now.
