It has been chilly here in coastal North Carolina lately…..I even went out to my car this morning and it was icy all over my car and my car doors were sticking that is such a rare occurrence in our area so I bundled up in my sweater, socks, and coat and headed on to work. I have learned it’s best too just keep moving on colder days because my office is quite chilly too this time of year.
This afternoon while I was collecting the eggs I decided to snap a few pictures of what our garden is looking like this time of year…..we do have a few cold weather loving plants! The carrots featured above absolutely love just being tucked into our raised beds for safe keeping…it’s built in storage in the garden!
The onions are loving this cool weather too I have to start making some Quiche soon!
The gals are enjoying some treats during our cold January! This time of year the gals actually enjoy oatmeal and left over bread this time of year.
The kale absolutely loves this cooler weather and all of our greens have just been delicious!
The other day I served Pak Choy with our pork chops and black-eyed peas for New Years day instead of the traditional southern collards and it was amazing but as far as I’m concerned all of the food we serve from our back yard is amazing because its superior to anything that you can get from the store because when you grow food in your own garden you can control the quality of the ingredients and you know what is on your dinner plate! I hope all of you enjoyed taking a walk through our winter garden!
