One last basket

All the kids came in this morning announcing that it's supposed to snow tomorrow, so out to the garden we went to pick anything that was left. Lots of comfrey (to be dried and added to winter chicken feed), several teeny tiny volunteer squash and squash blossoms from the compost bin, two tiny green tomatoes, some sorrel, and bits of mint, lemon balm, bee balm, feverfew, and sweet cicely.

This winter, I'm going to see what I can grow inside. I've yet to experiment with sprouts, or to have a successful container herb garden in my cold, drafty house. I'm determined to try, though; it'd be good to have some fresh greens through the winter.

that's my winter challenge keep the herbs alive! I hope you have luck this year to. The books are awesome finds.
