Updated Pictures: February 7
My tulips are in bloom! Ahhh, it feels like the start of Spring officially now! This made my Valentine's Day week!
This one pink tulip has these gorgeous stripes of dark pink that make it look like delicate candy!
My sweet peas look like they are also ready to burst with buds filling their robust stalks. I can't wait to see what colors pop out!
The broccoli (above) I harvested today and I also decided to begin harvesting some of my beets. They are all different sizes, so some need more time and others are ready!
Notice the broccoli plant is gone in this picture above because it was taken after harvest.
A proud mama of her beets and also yellow chard (underneath beets). I am 33 weeks pregnant here.
I love the deep red color of beets. So rich and royal! And I know these are going to be SO sweet! I think just a quick steam is all they need to be delicious! The greens are also such a wonderful source of vitamins! I will, of course, be using those as well!
