Winding Down

Plants - KaleKale is a trooper plant, continuing right into winter, losing all its leaves in the snow and sprouting right up again when spring arrives.  Here is one of mine that will continue producing even in frost.  The leaves will be frozen crunchy hard.  Doesn’t matter.  Cut off and bring inside, they thaw beautifully.  I don’t know how they do it!  I just hope the snow holds off.

Plants - Lemon ThymeAnd here is my lemon thyme, fully harvested for winter about a month ago.  It has already grown back quite a bit!  I may get a little more harvested.  There’s nothing like fresh lemon thyme thrown into eggs and soups.

I’m amazed at how alive the garden still is even though the blanket of leaves is falling rapidly.
