Christmas Salad, Fresh From the Coldframe

kathy_tnI’ll be cutting the remaining red-veined mizuna along with mustard and other greens from our coldframe (shown below) for a festive Christmas salad. For the first time in many years it looks like we will be having a brown Christmas in Wisconsin. Being able to walk through the yard without snowshoes has given me the chance to make more and more grandiose plans for next year’s garden. Boy, am I in trouble if I actually try to accomplish all of the projects.

mizunaI received a new journal as an early Christmas present and will be using it to keep track of some of my garden notes. I have multiple Excel spreadsheets that I use as annual logs and maps of what we grow but have never kept a wish list or a list of projects and things to do seasonally. I am making a New Year’s resolution to use the journal for all of that.

Happy holidays!  —Kathy Shaw, Neenah, Wisconsin

    Kathy, Congrats on the cold frame salad! I am trying a cold frame for the first time this winter, and as of 12-26-11, I was able to harvest some spinach and mache. Very good taste for both.
    Best wishes,

    You’re doing great Kathy. How are your projects going? We would love to see and hear other success you had for the last months. Cheers =)
