This week in the garden: Jan. 24, 2012

Not much has changed in the garden since the last update.  The collards have really taken off under their row cover.  I've harvested over a pound of leaves from them and they still look fantastic!  I made my first pure-garden meal: sauteed collards topped with poached eggs.

There are mid-winter blooms from the camelia and the winter honeysuckle providing food for any active pollinators.

The most exciting aspect of the garden is ironically inside.  Our seedlings are starting to look delicious!  I can't wait for them to go outside and become nice big salad lettuces!

And the tatsoi actually started to flower, so they were all harvested and made into a wilted salad!  Here is the last picture of a tatsoi for a while:
