Kentucky Fried Garden is my journal of vegetable gardening in humid western Kentucky USDA zone 7a. Knowing where my food comes from and whether it comes from non-genetically modified seed is important to me. I try to use open pollinated varieties in an effort to continue maintaining the diversity of food plants available to humans. Trying to extend the harvest by experimenting with hardier varieties and overwintering plants will be one of my projects.

Harvest Monday, 3/26/18
We've been eating the spinach in salads as well as soups.
The same bed that has the spinach and corn salad is also home to Red Russian kale. The kale had died off during our sub zero weather, but came back from it's roots and should reach harvestable size in another week or two. Everything else in the garden was killed off.
Lots of spring seedlings are growing in the greenhouse. I'm hoping the ground will dry out in the next couple of weeks so we can start planting. Pepper seedlings are starting to form their first true leaves, and tomatoes are just starting to germinate. Fingers crossed things go well.
Please join us at Harvest Monday, hosted by Dave at Our Happy Acres.
