The first real snow of the season fell last week, and the fall garden is only a little bit worse for the wear. The victim was the peas. The plants are fine, but the pea pods took a major hit and won't recover. I shelled several of the pods for part of my lunch today. Also for lunch were swiss chard, kale, and a handful of lettuce, all from the garden.
The broccoli is starting to flower. Slowly, though. We'll see what happens with these - who knows how long it will take to get to the point where we can harvest them. So far, we've only been eating some of the leaves, mixed with kale and swiss chard and stir-fried.
