First Face of Produce for 2013

Temperatures reached 60ºF in North Stonington today which drew us to the garden for a little post winter clean up.  To our delight there were ready to eat Brussels sprouts which had continued to grow through the winter, and some tender spinach and kale leaves sprouting.  It is these small surprises that make up for those days you find that the plants and vegetables you have nurtured for weeks and months have been wiped out over night by a critter with a good appetite.  You can't say enough about a plant that give you Brussels sprouts for Christmas, and Easter too.
