Christmas Eve Harvest

Greens, Bok Choy, Romain, Arugula, butter crunch, Parsley, Turnip, sweet peppers, and yellow pear tomatoes all harvested this morning for a fresh Christmas salad tomorrow
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
Also found this caterpillar this morning that seems to like the Parsley. Otherwise, I have seen very few bugs this time of year.
Another harvest from December 18th

December Update

I have been out of town a lot the last several weeks and have done very little in the garden. However, the moderate weather has enabled the garden do great with hardly any work. I have tons of leafy vegetables growing and still have many tomotoes. Last year we had a frost in this area in early December that killed all my cold tolerate plants. But so far this year we have not had a frost. The only bad thing is some of the cold climate plants (Bok Choy I planted a few weeks ago) are bolting due to the warm temperatures. I also noticed my drip zone timer was stuck in the on position and had been for quite a while. I need to keep a close eye on that timer and replace it if it gets stuck again.

No frost so far so even the bahia grass is green
