Yesterday, Feb 12, we harvested a nice meal of brussel sprouts and leeks. It's so nice to have something fresh from the garden in mid-winter.
We also planted fruit trees: 3 frost peach, 1 liberty apple and 1 dayton apple, several thornless blackberry and several red raspberries. Before we planted the berries, I dug a ditch to help drain part of the front garden and we piled up dirt to raise the root zone of the berries up away from water during heavy winter rains.
The garlic and shallots are up nicely. I mulched two beds of garlic and left two beds unmulched. I thing the mulched beds will do better -- fewer weeds.
