  1. Look at you GROW! Good work. :D

  2. Lovely mild winter you guys have out there. So many things you can grow this time of year. Then you don’t really need to grow lettuce indoors. Nice.

    BTW, I googled “chicken foraging blend” and guess what? It returned two links: both of them pointing to this post! LOL!

    So, what on earth is that?

  3. I just wish I had started it all when I was supposed to so that everything was ready to eat. But it is growing. Hopefully we won’t keep getting hard freezes like we’ve had since I still haven’t set up the hoop house. Not sure what I’m waiting for because hell has actually been freezing over lately. ;p

    Laura, I’m waiting to send you your little something after the giveaway just in case you win the book but it’s coming!

    Auburn, it’s a cover crop with peas, flax and other things for the girls to eat. Of course I haven’t gotten around to building the tractor yet so I can contain them on that particular bed. I let them out in the greater garden for the first time today and it appears they prefer cauliflower. But then who doesn’t?

  4. Sprouting broccoli? is this a different type of broccoli?

  5. It is – standard broccoli forms one main head and the plant is done once you harvest that. With sprouting broccoli it forms side shoots so you continue to harvest from the same plant all season long. It’s a nice way to extend your season and get good use from small space by harvesting multiple times from each plant.

  6. Thanks for the broccoli info. Can you tell me the variety names?

  7. Hi Gabriella,

    I have both Rudolph and Purple Sprouting from Territorial seeds. You won’t get a big main head from them like you see at the grocers but they are nice in that a small stand of them will keep you in broccoli for quite awhile. Territorial just mailed out their 2010 seed catalogs if you want to email them and get a jump on fall!
