There's a couple of new things in the harvest basket this week, I've started to harvest the Ruby Gem romaine on a cut-and-come-again basis. It's so pretty. Oh, and that's a few sprigs of arugula that I didn't tally. There were just a few snap and snow peas ready to harvest. I haven't taken a good look at the plants since the nights got to be so cold, they could be frost nipped into oblivion by now.
And I harvested the first spinach. I've got two varieties for the winter. Guntmadingen is a Swiss heirloom. I love it for the unique shape of the leaves and it's sweet flavor.

I keep getting to harvest stalks of celery. I've got four plants so I can harvest a stalk from each plant without cutting them back too hard. I hope these plants don't bolt early this spring.
Most of the radishes except for the China Rose are nearly all harvested.
I had to clear out part of the carrot patch to make room for the new onion plants. The Muscade carrots have sized up the best.
