Yes, I know it's nearly summer already, but I forgot to post some pictures on how my winter vegetables fared. Since our winters are pretty mild here in Southern California I planted a few seeds last November or December in some large pots. And one really big benefit is that you don't have to deal as much with the usual pests of summer, although I still had some problems with caterpilars.
I also planted some snap peas ("Sugar Snap" I think) on the small trellises I had left over from last summer's beans. They did better this year than the last time I tried them but still not as well as the first time. (Maybe I need to use an inoculant?) The kids like eating them straight off the vine but I think I'll try regular garden or "shelling" peas instead next winter.
I planted some green "bunching" onions as well, and they did very well, although I forgot to take a picture. But they sure tasted good chopped up with twice-baked potatoes! (Actually, I should have taken a picture of the twice-baked potatoes!)
This summer, in addition to the carrots I'm also trying some turnips – I don't think I've ever eaten a turnip before – as well as a different kind of green beans and zucchini.
