Root Crop harvesting

I haven't had a fall/winter garden in years! The start of school, followed by the time change make it difficult for me to find the time to work in my garden after school. I was determined this year! It really helped when we finally started getting some rain!

I think the white icicle and cherry belle radishes are so pretty!
This is my first time to raise carrots. I planted some last year, but it was too late into winter.
I plan to make pickled beets with these. I am not sure what the rogue white thing is! I think it is an Albino beet. They originate in Holland.
This is my pride and joy! It is my first Romanesco! I had more varieties of cauliflower and broccoli planted but the 2 or 3 hard freezes we had in South Texas came when the plants were susceptible to the cold, and it killed them! I also have a few sugar snap pea vines that are starting to produce. I usually pick and eat them while I am working in the garden.
Y'all come back,


  1. It all looks wonderful! I agree...white icicle and cherry belle radishes are pretty.

  2. wow. everything looks great! it has been years since i've tried growing anything in texas! :)

  3. The carrots must be so tender and sweet. We love pickled beets on our salad.

  4. I'm going to try carrots this season. I already have my beans, zucchini, yellow squash and cucumbers started from seeds. I may need to plant some beet seeds. I love pickled beets.

  5. ACK! Those look DELISH! Am raising my hand for a jar of the pickled beets! :) I grew some heirloom beets that were red and cut them and they were ringed.

  6. You're so lucky to have a winter garden. I love pickled beets and have a great recipe for them. Mimi

  7. Wonderful harvest! I am so jealous!!!
