Greenhouse: Nov. 6th, 2009

Pea flower

Kale

Greenhouse view

As of today (Nov. 19), the kale is bigger, and the green beans (in the cold frame) are blooming. The total pea harvest has been 7 pea pods…but wow, is it cool to see blooms in November! There’s also some Purple Peacock Broccoli and Happy Rich greens (like rapini) sprouting between the leeks and the cold frame – we’ll see how long that makes it.

The goal with the kale is to keep us in greens through January, and to protect the stalks so they can re-sprout early in the spring. We’ll see how that goes!

    Nice work, lady.

    I totally agree- how weird/fabulous is it to see pea blossoms at Thanksgiving time?

    What an accomplishment! I am trying to learn more about growing veggies from seed. Last year we had success with bell peppers and herbs, but we bought our tomatoes as seedlings.
