Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At least we're still getting greens out of our garden - pulled a winter cabbage tonight, discarded the outer leaves (I may try making shoes from them or something!), fried the middle leaves with some onions to go with dinner tonight and the heart will probably make coleslaw on Friday night. That's a satisfying feeling in January.

Pictures and notes on the disaster zone here.  The notes are on the info button for each picture.

Last produce for us was about a month ago - also, a cabbage. Ran out of potatoes a little before that.

Last year we were still eating apples, but this past Spring the frosts took out almost all of the apple blossoms. This Winter has seen more snow and harder freezing than usual. I probably won't try to do anything but prune the grape vines for at least a month more.
