The Daily Pixel: Trying not to hate my winter garden

Prior to Thursday, Sacramento hadn’t seen rain since November 20. Two solid months of dry. Between you and me, I’m shocked that my little garden survived since I’ve barely spent any time out there. That said, I’m trying not to be peeved about some problems…

January 21, 2012

Damaged harvest. Who’s eating my snow peas?!? (Or is that frost damage?)
Oak trees dropping piles of leaves and choking out my kale. (Random aside: I tried kale for the very first time the other day. I baked it in “chip” form… SO GOOD! Who knew?)

 

Fungi running amok.

 

Plants that I can’t identify anymore. (I’m thinking this is miner’s lettuce, but it could also be loverage. I can’t remember and my popsicle stick signs have all faded beyond recognition.)

 

Frost-zapped nasturtiums. 🙁
