Final Winter Harvest

Signs of Spring are showing up everywhere! The frogs are singing, the hummingbirds are back and it is past due to harvest the last winter root crops.
Bolero Carrots ~ Purple Sprouting Broccoli ~ Parsnips
The weather has warmed some and the 'Bolero' carrots have gone a bit 'hairy' but nothing can compare to their flavor! This was my first attempt at 'Purple Sprouting Broccoli'... beautiful, but it seems to take up lots of garden space for a minimal harvest. The parsnips as usual are large and sweet.... now it's time to start seeding the brassicas and herbs for the garden.
Happy Spring Planting!

Denman Island Christmas Craft Faire 2010

Sally Rae at the Denman Island Christmas Craft Faire
Another year has come and gone. As I catch up on my neglected 'things to do list' I have made a small movie with my Flip Video of last year's Christmas Craft Faire. After all the long days and late nights of preparation, it is great to look back and see the many familiar faces that I have shared this experience with over the past 20 years.
