look who decided to join the party!
The parsnips have arrived! Hip Hip Hooray! Now the mini-farm is complete. Hopefully I continue to have a green thumb and each variety makes it to fruition.
Today I did the nasty (albeit necessary) task of thinning. This is what the damage looked like.
That big pile in the front are the turnips. There were so many sprouts!! The stringy ones are leeks, and then there's kale, carrots, and broccoli. It seems like cruel and unusual punishment but if I really want to eat a turnip then I have to make room for growth.
In other news, something munched on this pea plant! Apparently it didn't like it because I didn't see any evidence of munching on any of the other peas. (phew)
A happy row of peas and favas. If all goes well we'll be quite well fed!
Snapped on the way to the garden. Proof that L.A. does have seasonal changes, however subtle. ;P
Happy weekend, all!
