Mid-Winter Harvest

The sun was shining (finally), so I went out into the garden to see what I could find. Aside from the usual lettuce, I picked a large handful of chicory (which was quite bitter but good boiled, then sauted with garlic and olive oil), a bunch of radicchio (made into a radicchio lasagna), some herbs (which I'm drying) and some cabbage roses (for a winter boquet). Not bad for a mid-winter harvest.

On January 31, here in MN, we were treated to our first day above freezing (29 days below zero), so to read what you harvested on that day - was a mini-vacation. I am dreaming of a greenhouse. Enjoy your winter harvest.

I've never heard of cabbage roses. Beautiful color.
