Getting caught up

I have been very remiss in my blogging. Now that the yard is blanketed in snow I can get caught up on the last month. To add a little colour to your white world today here is my last garden pictures for 2010.

This year I planted very colourful vegetables. These are Purple Haze carrots

and "blue" potatoes.
I turned this colourful bowl of vegetables and parsley

into lots and lots of freezer salsa.
I also grew little purple eggplants. This one is Hagar.

I love the coloured veggies....Those are wicked. Even after cooking do the keep their colour? What about flavour? Come on these are veggies feed us more info...

Yes, they all keep their colour. My favourite beans are Royal Burgundy. The blossoms are purple, the beans are purple but when you cook them, they turn green. They are magic beans. I love growing different things. I get all my seeds mailorder from Vesey's or McFayden's.

I wish I wanted to grow vegetables. {sigh} I just don't want to ... don't like getting my hands dirty, or touching bugs and worms. Don't tell me to wear gloves, then I don't like getting the gloves dirty.

I want to want to garden, but I don't want to.

I don't like gloves.
