We finally got a shower last week and again today so I thought I'd check on the garden and was amazed what a little water can do. It was getting dark so I couldn't cut much stuff but needless to say I've gotta get busy eating veggies.

Stir fry is the menu for tomorrow night. We also like to take the brocolli, cauliflower and carrots and mix in a bag and marinate overnight in zesty italian dressing. Good eats.

We can never do winter gardens here. Our Spring doesn't start until end May, and our Fall is totally over in October. We've had freeze on/off for weeks. Yesterday morning temp was 27. From 3:00 PM to some time in the evening, we had 9-10" of snow.

Blanched and bagged brocolli and cauliflower for the freezer and also put up a gallon of pickled cauliflower and brocolli

Yes Sir they were my daughter was helping me pluck them from the stalk she got tired of fighting with them and left me to finish up lol I am still thinking about the pickled brussel sprouts you mentioned to me. I may do the next batch that way. That stalk was hard as crap to cut even with my sharpest hunting knife I had to chop it like a ax cutting a tree.
