Crunchy Bibb lettuce, colorful Swiss chard, sweet pac choi, and crisp radishes were fresh additions to a winter salad.

It is great fun to wander through the gardens, picking and pulling food from the ground, then enjoying its intense flavors soon afterward.

If you are new to gardening, you can get some ideas from my posts on the basics of starting seeds, how to start composting, and why I mulch.

Gardening is soooo much fun!

  1. You’re making me jealous!! My garden is covered in weeds from last summer, and 2 feet of snow drifts. But, I’m already experimenting with the Farmer’s Almanac website garden planner. 🙂 Thanks for the bright pictures!
