It's February and there's not much veg left in my garden. It's generally very cold, windy and muddy in Northern Ireland in January and February so I don't really get out into the garden much. March is usually when I start gardening again, taking on various projects and getting the garden tidied up. However, after seeing Mark's Veg Plot's post on the last of his parsnips I thought I'd check if I had any edible carrots left. I had a look (photo left) but I'm yet to go out pulling. (It's just too cold!)
|The kale lasts well over Winter, however, I can see flowers forming in the centre of the plant so they're really past eating. I imagine they'd be bitter tasting. I'll let them flower and pull them out in March.|
Other edibles in the garden at the minute (not much) - a few herbs and leeks, just. I really need to get sowing but I'll wait until March / April.
