Our favorite Spice Girl, Nikki from Northaven Gardens, has a message and a dare for you.
It is time to plant seed potatoes, shallots, onions, asparagus, and berries. You can also plant broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and greens right now. The cole crops all do great in cold weather. Most of my lettuces survived the ice and last night I ate salad with my own lettuce and made homemade dressing with my own herbs that all survived quite well. Anywhoo, there you go! We’re daring all the true foodies to grow their own food this year!
Well, la-di-da, la-di-da, la-di-da, Miss Nikki. Or shall I say Mrs. Nikki who has a husband to do the heavy digging and lifting. No, I am not bitter, just without husband and not capable of digging a garden. I do grow herbs in pots on my patio. However, if anyone wants to start a community garden patch with me, I’ll do my share of the work.
