Winter vegetables are in the ground!
I planted broccoli and cabbage about two weeks ago and they have struggled to survive in the 100 degree weather. Two of them got nipped off by unknown culprits. I doubt it was the grey squirrel I caught because there was so much more inviting plants to nibble on. I put some fertilizer on the plants and they looks somewhat better.
So when I went to town yesterday, I stopped at the nursery and bought a six pack of broccoli and one of brussel sprouts and got them in the ground. I planted near the gate so I don't have to go trapsing over mud to get to them in midwinter. They look great although the row goes wandering around a little. I certainly do not have the military look of straight rows all neat as a pin. But never mind. This winter I will be so happy to go out to the garden and pick a meal of broccoli or brussel sprouts for dinner. All I need are about two heads of cabbage as it is a vegie that last forever picked and in the fridge.
