These are the survivors, including a lone radish. First, they survived the relentless attack of the cabbage worms (but not without battle scars consisting of big holes and missing chunks of leaves), and now they have survived their frost and snow. I stir-fried these greens for lunch. They were really tasty, but so little in quantity to just barely whet our appetites. I really need to figure out a way to grow these better and to protect them from pests next year!
Also surviving frost and snow are some volunteer parsley that have been growing for the last two months. They seem really hardy and healthy in the outdoor garden.
I supplemented this week's garden harvest with some cilantro and basil from our indoor grow box. A single Jelly Bean tomato (also from the grow box) somehow made its way onto the harvest plate, too. I chopped up the cilantro and mixed it in with some freshly cooked brown rice. They added a nice flavor to the rice!
I also picked the last handful of green beans from the grow box. While it was kind of cool to find out that we could grow green beans (bush variety) in our grow box, I have to admit that they were still very cramped in there and did not grow to their full potential. I'm not sure if I'll grow them again in the grow box.
The harvests are definitely getting smaller, but we really appreciate every little bite that makes its way into our kitchen.
