Veggie Growing

Our winter vegetable garden is just about coming to its end to make room for our spring fare. Since we've really gotten the hang of this gardening thing over the last year we've decided to make our garden box a little bigger this year. We're giving our veggies a little more time to grow while Andrew constructs the new box. We've got a really good head of cauliflower growing right now. It's been pretty cool watching this thing grow. The leaves are absolutely huge.

All this from one tiny seed. Pretty amazing. At first we thought that the plant had forgotten to actually grow the meat of the vegetable. But then all of a sudden there was a tiny floret inside, which has continued to grow at an astonishing rate. Hopefully it will be pretty close to ready to pick by next weekend when we plan on planting the spring garden.

We also have some carrots that are getting pretty big. We picked one tonight to see how they were coming along, and they were a pretty decent size.

We all shared this little sucker tonight, and he was so tasty! Very sweet and flavorful. Nothing like home grown veggies!
