Christmas break has been awesome. My husband has been off work for about 2 weeks, and it has been raining so much in the Panhandle that we have just been relaxing and enjoying each other’s company so much. I have stayed up way too late. We had such a happy Christmas. I hope you were able to spend time with your loved ones too.
This rain has been persistent. Good for relaxing, but I just wish that I had plowed under half of my yard; scattered half a pound of turnip, mustard, kale, and radish seeds, and let these nine days of rain water them. They’d probably be half grown by now.
I have to be content, though, with harvesting a few sugar snap peas and some mustard greens. Planting those peas in September has worked out well so far. They got tossed into a stir fry last night. Yummy! The cosmos you see in the background is actually a second generation flower from seeds I planted last spring. I think all the plants are confused.
New Year’s Day I plan to make some blackeye peas and collard greens. Happy New Year, everyone!
