Winter to Spring

This picture, taken February 4, is typical of the look of the garden all winter. The plants grow slowly and are close to the ground. The row on the front left is collards, which can be eaten all winter. On the foreground right side is a patch of garlic chives and a row with onions around the periphery. In the background are rows of cabbage, broccoli & cauliflower. Wet! We had wonderful rain all winter. The rain has continued the last 2 weeks, about 1/2 inch each week.
I took this picture today. The garden has dried out and the rows are ready to turn for the spring planting. In the far left of the foreground is a row of carrots. The far right is garlic with small lettuce plants in the row also. The collards are going to seed, so I will pull them today. Beyond the collards is some cilantro going to seed also. they have such pretty flowers, I may leave them for a while.
