Fall Garden Update #4

fresh radishes I’ve finally been able to harvest a few things from my sad looking fall garden. A few radishes finally bulbed out. And the bibb lettuce hung on long enough to give me some good leaves. The spinach and bright lights swiss chard awarded me a few small but tasty leaves as well.

Little Finger Carrots I picked all the greens and thoroughly washed them, because they were quite dirty with our latest rain splashing dirt on them. Once they were all clean, I shook the water off and put them in a damp paper towel and then in a ziploc. This should help them stay fresh in the fridge a little longer.
