Winter Green

Winter is here, but it has not nipped my garden completely. Even after a 25 degree day, my greens are still growing! The plants are smaller than they were in the summer, but the arugula, mesclun greens and radicchio continue to sprout new leaves. Parsley, oregano and rosemary are alive and well too. Of course, I am happy to keep plucking away and enjoying fresh greens and herbs in my salad. But I was kind of expecting snow at this point, not least because I'd like to get my skis out and hit the mountains!
