Sleepy Garden

I wouldn't say it's entirely asleep. Observe:

Primroses are actually happy to bloom year-round, it seems.

And here are some (bug-eaten, but still!) collards and arugula.

This is where I show you the decomposing hay that I sprinkled with a cover crop (peas) back in November... it's actually growing through!!

These carrots aren't stopping! (although how big they are remains to be seen...)

And tiny tiny beets!

This is in the backyard, where I'm starting some new gardening areas (and the future chicken coop!). It looks like nothing's going on until...

You use the telephoto lens! Tiny pea vines, creating "green manure" for me to till under in the spring.

All in all, I'm really happy that there's some soil-building progress going on, without (literally) any effort from me.
