I have a few things in my winter garden.It is nice to go out there and see a little green.Down here we grow cool weather crops in the winter.These are veggies a lot of you up north grow in the summer. They can't possible survive in our summer heat but do well in our mild winters.I really hoped to have a much bigger crop of winter veggies....maybe next winter.
Here are some cabbages forming up nicely.
This is kale.
I don't use a whole lot of kale but I try to grow a lot of it for the chickens in the winter.It is nutrient packed,easy to grow and the chickies love it! It gives them a little extra nutrition when there are less things to forage on.
This is a kohlrabi.I have never grown this before or even eaten one! I am always looking to add a little variety to the garden though!
Of course,the southern staple, turnip greens.Yummy,yummy!
Here is a broccoli, still a little small.
These are brussels sprouts.Just the mention of these causes The Boy's tongue to protrude and sounds of disgust can be heard as he flees the area! They haven't made any sprouts yet but you can see little knobs where they are trying.
Bonnie is finally back with her love,Clyde ! Poor girl,she had 2 wounds. One healed up real quick,the other seemed to take forever! So now she is a free donkey again.
I have to say that the worse part of homesteading for me is caring for injured animals.I know this is part of the package,but it is so stressful and nerve wracking.A lot of prayer goes on in the barn! This is one of those things that I think will get better with experience but, the double edged sword,I don't want to have any more experience!
While I was trying to get a good picture of her, Clyde the Ham decided he wanted his picture taken instead!
Actually I am pretty sure he was just trying to score a treat!
