This has to be the wackiest winter we’ve ever seen in Syracuse. It feels like North Carolina, not northern New York. I’ve been walking past the garden, thinking about the garlic nestled down in the dirt, the asparagus that will be some of our earliest veggies, and the parsnips, getting sweeter by the day.
Well, I finally couldn’t stand it any longer. Usually I can’t get the parsnips out past the frozen layer of dirt until March, but there they are, so easily pulled even in the “dead” of a very alive winter. So I did it. Stuck my hand down in that cold dirt, pulled a few, and inhaled deeply of the earth and the goodness overwintering in it. Ahhh! Smells like life itself. Can’t say “can’t wait for spring!” ‘cuz it’s here already!
Anybody harvesting anything now? How has this warm winter affected your garden?
