It was a beautiful winter day today. In between errands, I went to the Plot Against Hunger garden at 10th and Barton to check on the turnips I had left snugged under leaves in November.
We’ve had some cold weather, including some sleety slick snow, so the turnip tops didn’t look that great, but when I separated the leaves and looked under them, I could see some nice looking little turnips.
They had quite a set of roots on them, so I trimmed those, along with the frosted tops and set them aside for delivery to AFAC.
While it’s nice to reap the results of the fall sowing, it’s also been nice to rest. I’ve begun to compile seed catalogs and think about possible garden plans for this spring. I’m also enjoying some other sewing, with almost immediate harvests and a lot less weeding. I made this happy little tooth, obviously NOT uneasy under his crown.
Then I sewed this treeling, also happy, probably because it’s so warm on the bookshelf.
Then I took a family portrait. I have a feeling I’m only getting started here.
