Our Vegetable Garden In the Last Days of December

December has been unusually warm this year, which has allowed some humble, yet sturdy vegetables to not only survive but even to thrive in these short days. Usually, the soil would be deeply frozen by now, calmly resting under a thick layer of snow.

I’m grateful for the vegetables to give us delicious food full of life force, which is so important in winter. Lamb’s lettuce, radicchio, two varieties of kale, Brussels sprouts, leek, collard, parsley are still living with such intensity and trust that I have to admire them. Their roots are blanketed with now decaying leaves, brought to the garden by the gale winds which battered our village in mid-November.

I would also like to let you know that now I have a Twitter account and you are warmly welcome to visit me there.

I wish you many peaceful and happy moments in 2014.

    Vau, Tanja! Kako lepo videt🙂 Sicer je tudi moj vrt še živ, a daleč od bujnosti, ki jo je videti na tvojih slikah. Sem vesela zate in za tvoje. Želim ti prijeten skok v novo leto, ki naj ti prinese vsega ravno prav.

      Nataša, hvala, hvala za lepe želje. Všeč mi je “…ki naj ti prinese vsega ravno prav.” Ljudje vse bolj pozabljamo, da je ravno prav hkrati tudi dovolj. Vse lepo tudi tebi in tvojim najbližjim.

    Sem že kar pogrešal tvoje zapise in najmanj kar sem pričakoval za novo leto, so pa tile krasni posnetki živahnega zelenjavnega vrta. Povezovalni tekst je kot običajno, odličen. Vse najlepše in veliko radosti v letu 2014, tako doma kot tudi na vrtu.

    Draga Tanja,
    ob koncu leta bi se ti rada zahvalila za tvoje lepo pisanje, ki me je razveseljevalo, za misli, ki me bogatijo in mi v težkih trenutkih preženejo slabo voljo in žalost in mi vlivajo moč in optimizem. Pa hvala za prelepe fotke, ki učijo videti tisto pravo lepoto, ki je povsod okrog nas.
    Naj ti novo leto prinese veliko lepega, predvem pa boljše počutje.

    Tanja, vse dobro!!!!! Naj bo leto tvoje! In vaše!
