December harvests

It is one week before Christmas, and my vegetable garden is bursting with leaf lettuces, kale and collards ready to harvest for our holiday dinners. Turnips, carrots, and beets are growing strong; I hope they will survive for harvesting in January and February. Fava beans are 10 inches tall. This is my first try at fava beans, but they should do well throughout the winter and be ready for spring harvest.
