November Garden Update
It’s been awhile since October 3rd, hasn’t it? The garden sure shows it, at least.
Turns out that the perfectly sunny patch of yard for the summer isn’t so grand for the autumn & winter. No sunlight means plants that hardly grow.
And I’m sure the frost isn’t helping them either.
One thing that seems happy enough is the sorrel I planted last spring. Which disappeared under a zucchini at some point. Then reemerged after I yanked the beast. Sorrel soup–you’re on my horizon.
The fava plants are doing ok too. Not shooting up like expected, but faring better than the greens. As nitrogen fixing plants, I’m hoping they’ll give a little back. Though maybe I should have planted a host of them as a cover. Who knows. But if I get any fava beans from them, I’ll call it a roaring success.
Mostly it feels like little has grown in the past month. So maybe I’ll harvest some Chinese cabbage soon for a stir-fry, pull the stray carrot or two to munch, and simmer a sorrel soup. The rest I’ll leave up to experiment.
And maybe, just maybe, I’ll actually manage to plant my garlic. A girl can dream for more hours in a day, right?
