GWN, what is that in your avatar?

It is a Jasper Geode, rockhounding has become my hobby in the winter, in fact we drove through Redding this fall on our way to Nevada.  We spent the winter in our vintage motorhome, camping in the desert and searching for cool rocks.
I struggle with the winters here, I lived in coastal oregon for 13 years and just cannot get used to not seeing the ground for 4 months of the year.

So when we retired we took to traveling around for the winter.

I cooked up my very last pumpkin and made pumpkin cookies yesterday.
thought so, nice, I am a bit of a rock hound as well!

I snow shoveled some of the paths in my garden -- not all the way down, don't want to toss my wood chips all over the lawn.  And then I harvested greens from the low tunnel (rocket, mustards, komatsuna, claytonia, & mache, started back in September/October) -- salad for lunch, w/ one of my mini butternut squash!

OMG! CAULIFLOWER! It was absolutely FABULOUS! At first I was disappointed because the heads are small and loose, on long stems -- more like broccoli -- but the taste and crispness were amazing. We ate the stems, too -- dipped them in homemade ranch dressing and ate them raw. I may give up on broccoli and Brussels sprouts and switch to nothing but kale and cauliflower next winter.  I love you

Was that one of the purple cauliflowers? I was so surprised at how delicious fresh garden cauliflower tastes raw.

Me, too. Hubby was really amazed. I couldn't find seeds for the purple. These were called "rainbow" I think. I bought plants on a whim from a nursery last year. I still have 2 more heads forming. Do you eat the leaves from yours?

I used the leaves to make Boffer's "Cabbage rolls." Boil for one min, ice plunge for one min. Remove the center vein. Stuff with your favorite recipe.

Vegetables previously frozen - Lady Cowpeas, Dragon Tongue Beans, Shell Peas, Silver Queen Whole Kernel Corn.  (and a side dish of chicken).  Have to get the freezer emptied out to get ready for this summer.

I know what you mean. I need to eat last summer's frozen veggies, and I only have a side-by-side freezer!

Wish I could grow cauliflower and broccoli. I can get the leaves, which is fine, but the heads, if any, are the size of my pinkie nail.

I sure hope Camp, our NE Champ, will chime in. For CA, the seedlings are set out in the fall and start heading Jan-Feb.

Too much nitrogen?  CC, Mybe your beds are all leaves no fruit?  Which in my experience is too much N.  Get your MM or dirt tested

CC,  could it be the amount of kelp added to the beds?  Out of balance nutrients?  What do I know.  If you get your soil test, maybe use U Mass with their soil-less test?  (dirt-free mix)

Oh my gosh I just hit the motherload. I guess I haven't done it a while but I cleaned out the freezer today and ran across a bag each of strawberries, garlic scapes, peppers and tomatoes. So I made some strawberry yogurt which will go in the fridge for dessert tonight. And I'm cooking up some tomato sauce, garlic scapes and fusilli for lunch today.What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 7 Img_2092

My garden feels sorry for me. I've been so discouraged, but this morning I went out to find some salad makings and came back with a nice mess of snow peas (mistake from some seed co. -- supposed to be sugar snaps), tiny purple broccoli, and small cauliflower heads. All were delicious and gave me new energy to carry on the good fight. (The phone rang while I was looking for the camera, and by the time I got back, Hubby already had them cut up and gone, so no pic. Rolling Eyes)

We are still eating the over wintered carrots ... have taken all out of one bed to clear it entirely for this years brassica .
 We still have some long rooted winter carrots in the ground in another bed .

The lifted carrots .....about 12 pounds of them are stored in a three gallon pail /bucket of chopped  moist coir.. We've found it is as good a damp peat for root crop storage plus  we'll get o use it as the soil for this years  tub tomatoes towards the  end of May 
 We also still have a dozen of so inch thick leeks with a 9 inch length of white flesh below ground to harvest .

 Some of you may recall I managed to grow some Chou D' Aubenton  ( perennial/ ever lasting  Kale ) from some beginning to rot cuttings that were held up  for nearly three weeks in the international post one Easter ( they came from France ).
  I sterilised in a cap-full  of baby bottle sterilizing bleach to a mug of warm water for a few seconds after gently scrubbing the slime off under running cold water with a nailbrush several years ago . Any place where the slime had been was then carefully sliced off with a scalpel  & given anther sterilizing then rinsed in running water shaken dry ( ish ) & dipped in rooting compound then planted as deep as I could so the bottom leaves were just clear of the soil & watered them in well . 

 I must have done something right , for over the last five years I've always managed to take cuttings off a plant that was left to go leggy  but this time simply pulling a leggy shoot off ensuring it has a heel on it & popping it in a dibbed hole then flooding the hole with clean water then gently tamping the hole closed . snip of the biggest leaves but do leave some on the cutting .
  This last week we've been eating the results too . There are six  ull grown plants in the beds , we take a few leaves off each plant each time we want some fresh greens . There are now five cutting too .

  Tuesday saw us eat the final Brussels sprouts & the sprout tops as chopped cabbage with sautee'd potatoes & inch thick homemade beef , pork , onions & salted bacon burgers with whole  home canned tomatoes & plenty of tomato juice instead of gravy .

Do you remove the greenery from the carrots when they are in peat storage?

Can you give a brief explanation how you make your homemade yogurt?  Do you have a yogurt maker or do you use something else?  What do you use for starter?  Have you tried making Kefir?

Do you think an amateur could make coconut yogurt?
