Winter White Green

I have a hard time believing we are in the Christmas Season already. While the temperature has dropped nicely, I had to wear sandels to the store the other day to pick up some ornament hooks.

Here's other reasons why I have a hard time believing it's Christmas time:
My enormous cabbage. It's absolutely huge. Pretty sure when it's time to pick it, I won't be able to lift it. Nor have a pot big enough to cook it in.

Pea pods. We have tons of these, except they don't last long enough to grow into peas...The Big Apple and myself are guilty of going outside and having a little snack when we think the other isn't watching.

Baby Spinach. Another item that doesn't last long. It tastes too good in my salad to grow into Adult spinach. Spring Mix Salad???? Yup, that's what I planted, and now I have so much salad, I barely can eat it all myself. It's a good think I have a few helpers that can go out and pick a bowl of salad to eat with their dinner.
Sweet little blooms...
In a couple of weeks, these pretty dainty things will be more pea pods for us to eat.
We also have carrots growing, but aren't nearly ready yet.
We also have a ton of basil, rosemary, and oregano.

So, while yall are dreaming of a White Christmas....I'll be dreaming of a green Christmas just the same. :)
