So a couple of weeks ago I brought in the very, very, VERY last of the garden: the last of the Brussel Sprouts. Every year I am amazed at these little garden beauties. We like to wait until after the first hard frost to bring them in, but these little gems have had several frosts, snow, and a couple of mid-20s overnight freezes. As you can see, they still look pretty healthy.
The chickens were there to help, of course, as they always are when I'm in the garden.
|Snack?!? Snack?!? Do you have a Snack?!?|
|Figures - They had NO interest in the sprouts until I started working on another plant.|
|Despite the rough weather, they all still looked really good.|
|I think she was looking for bugs. Either that or was checking my work. Either way, she's not shy.|
