My over wintered spinach has been growing and thriving again, so tonight I went out and picked spinach for the dinner salad! (In February!)
Also the recipe I was making (Paav Bhaji, wonderful!) called for cabbage and I didn't have any. So I went and picked leaves off the overwintered broccoli. I figured broccoli and cabbage are pretty closely related. Worked okay, though I do think the cabbage would probably have been better.
But it was so cool to be going out with my bowl gathering for supper again! Hasn't really been that long; I was still picking swiss chard in December. And it won't be very long now before I could pick a few of the new leaves from the overwintered chard!
The combination of mild winter, putting in a new veggie bed in the middle of the front lawn where it is sunny, and me continuing to learn and get better at this stuff, means that I'm eating out of my garden more than ever!
