I had been meaning to run by the garden to check out the turnips in the Plot Against Hunger garden. They are snug under fallen leaves with just their tops sticking out and just about ready to harvest. I also wanted to check on my cold frame. The weather has been enough to give a person whiplash: freezing for a couple days, back in the fifties after that. As a result, I have left the lid open. The lettuces and arugula all looked fine, so I harvested a few leaves.
I had also been wondering about the lacianato kale and was pleased to see it had grown so much. Those leaves are going into a spinach-kale sauté this week.
I did notice that the other kale plant had been nibbled into near non-existence by something, as had the chard. I should probably get back to harvest those turnips before the veggie-loving voles (or maybe the pesky rabbits) start nibbling at those as well.
