Harvest Fridays – Halloween and Leafy Greens!

Harvest Fridays – The Winter Garden

Friday, already? I’m not complaining! This week, my garden did lots of growing. Sadly, I didn’t do too much picking. I had a weird stomach bug or something for half the week, and although I could still eat, I wasn’t exactly up for harvesting or cooking (or anything I couldn’t do from a fetal position…
