For the first time, the Farmer decided to plant a late fall garden. We had seeds for two types of greens (mustard and turnip) and set out small cabbage and broccoli plants. It has really grown and we hope to harvest from our small patch.
I am not a turnip green eater. My mom would cook them when I was growing up, but I just never developed a taste for them. I do love steamed broccoli, along with steamed cabbage or cole slaw.
This spring we thought we would not have enough time to garden so we skipped planting one. That won't happen next spring! Usually we have a small plot of cantaloupe, tomatoes, green peppers, corn, peas and/or green beans, watermelon, squash, cucumbers and okra. One year we even planted a few sweet potatoes.
Last year we had such a mild winter we were surprised to see our plowed under garden, reproducing with no help from us. We ended up with a few cantaloupe and cucumbers.
