Late harvest

A chilly, windy day.

But I was out planting more garlic and perennial herbs that didn’t sell at market, and noticed that the pepper plants died, but all the peppers that hid from my hungry hands lay on the ground now, ready for picking! And more broccoli! And kale. And parsnips (no surprise there). And even cilantro! You believe that?

Senor eats tonight.

    Thank you. . . . There are perennial herbs that make it through the winter here on the Cape?
    will give the garlic thing a go as soon as the sun returns
    And many thanks for Frost. A favorite!
