Was that Winter?

In my opinion we have not had much cold weather at all.  I know we live in Florida so we don't expect very cold weather.  Some cold or cooler temperatures are nice though.  At the market on Saturdays people always complain when it's cold, (we are out there pretty early in the morning) but I tell them to appreciate the little we get cause before we know it we will be sweating at this time!  I know I need and love the cooler weather.

Now on to the garden.  

This week I will be planting my cucumbers, beans, some more lettuce and radishes.  My tomato and pepper starts are almost ready to be planted out.  We may get another cold snap but I am prepared to cover things if I have to.  I try to beat the heat with some things, especially cucumbers.
See my Planting Guide for when to plant what.
I now have tomato and pepper transplants available $3.00 each.  $5.00 for a 3 pack. Current tomato varieties:  Brandywine, Roma, Cherokee Purple, Cherry.  Peppers:  Cal. Wonder Bell, Mini Bell, Buran Bell.   Prices and quantities vary week to week.  Email to pre-order and for current stock.  
I just added Beefsteak Tomato, a meaty large juicy tomato and Purple top White Globe Turnips, a true old time favorite with large green tops that make the best turnip greens.

Also, Straightneck Yellow Squash  and St. Valery carrot are Back in Stock!
Too much Cabbage?  Try making homemade Sauerkraut.  So easy and fresh.
Here is a recipe for Pickled Radishes and Carrots.  Great easy way to preserve some of that harvest.
