    The only thing to do with green stuff right now is make a few Christmas wreaths, got all the supplies but is either been too cold or too stormy to do it outside, it can get messy fast.

    No wreaths here , but I did pick 2 cabbages and 2 broc heads today, that may be the last of those unless temps stay above 30F for a couple of more weeks. There are still a few more of both growing but that temp dip to down 20F for 2 nites 2 weeks ago made them hit the breaks. The collards are still going good, the spinach is doing fair, and the carrots like being underground. Taking seed inventory and ordered a few more for next season.

    Just realized this thread been around for nearly a decade. But starting to think of stuff I can do outdoors again before the snowfalls come there is always brush that needs disposing, or there is an old tractor path that needs clearing, plenty of things to do, not allowed to start plants until February or March.

    Picked the last of the turnips yesterday. That leaves collards, carrots, and spinach growing well and pickable until the temps drop into the teens. There are a few broccoli and cabbages left but I doubt that they time to mature.

    Picked the last (almost) of the carrots today. We're expecting a lot of rain tonite and they may have split open since temps are warm enough here to encourage unwanted late growth. Still picking collards and spinach too, both should be either dormant or long gone by now. Several warms days ahead for trimming some fruit trees now and I'm hoping this warmer than normal winter (so far) doesn't wake them up too early. No bud swell showing yet but the cherries and blueberries aren't to far off from that stage.

    Amazing! Picked enough broccoli for dinner! These plants should be a frozen mush by now, I've never picked broccoli in Jan much less Feb. This mild winter is keeping us stocked in collards too which should also be kuput as should everything other than the last of the carrots which were also picked today. Temp hit 72F today, sunny with a sweet Virginia breeze going on, a perfect hammock day. Fruit trees are all pruned now and a few of them are waking up, esp the plums which are near bud swell stage. Daffodils are 3" high now and the grass is greening up, it's way too early guys, sloooooow doooown!

    It is almost time to think about starting seeds, drove by the greenhouse and they had seeds in the other day. Some plants can take about 6 months from start to picking so it is almost time.
