Time to breathe and eat

It is a peaceful time in the yard and garden. The hens are starting to molt (lose their feathers) and to lay fewer eggs due to the reduced light as well. The bees (the hive that is left) are putting away their winter stores of goldenrod pollen and honey. All the winter greens are growing well, and all I can do right this minute is harvest each day.

We eat lettuce in fresh salads every day, sometimes 4 kinds per salad. Each day I also choose between kale and collards, bok choy and chinese cabbage for a cooked green. Some time to breathe and enjoy.
