what goes down must come up

Today was the start of some more planting in the greenhouse and my hope is that what goes down into the soil will pop back up as some delicious eating! Today i planted peas and garlic in the greenhouse. The peas will go out with our CSA as pea shoots which are delicious in a salad or in a stir fry. The garlic will also go out in our CSA probably close to the end when it will hopefully have developed into a beautiful bulb.
The weather has been very cold the past few days and this has led to the ground getting very hard making it difficult to harvest things such as leeks. It also means that cauliflower and broccoli are quickly on there way out. Although they are both cold tolerant when the temperatures are currently in the negative the plants do start to suffer.
Everything else has been pretty uneventful this week. Hopefully things continue to go smoothly!
