|Cauliflower Growing in November|
|Pink Radish Flowers After Snow|
|My Rutabaga Root Cellar|
What continues to boggle my mind is the tangle of vines, pods and pink flowers that my radish continues to produce. Who knew radishes were so prolific! Even after a month of hard frost and first snow, my garden radish still has a few delicate pink flowers. What a hardy producer. When the pods dry, I'll harvest the seeds. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas?
But take my advice--plant some radishes for food, but also plant for ornamentation. Consider that it's given me flowers since July and it is now November! And the pollinators absolutely love radish flowers. I can't say how it will do in other climates, but that's why we have to experiment. Learn from the fails, follow up on the successes.
Rutabagas are ready to harvest. I just need a day without snow or rain. The one day I did have sunshine (yesterday would have been perfect) I went to town. I'll be exploring rutabaga recipes for Thanksgiving. Oh, the feast day menu is already peculating in my head.
And these photos are "real time" as in yesterday I snapped a few shots. It's November yet what fine greenery is this?
