There is parsley, carrots, onions from sets and seed, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, one chile plant, and the celerys are the tallest plants visible. And I also forget a couple when folks ask me, whatcha growing? This will the second winter for this hoop house. Last year the swiss chard did the best of all the stuff I grew.

I used to have a beautiful vegetable garden before we moved to Florida. I do miss it.

That looks like a nightmare happened in the middle of the night. The attack of the monster carrots! Do I see a movie script in the future? We had the attack of the tomatoes, children of the corn, why not the carrots?

How would you go about peeling them?

Break off the nubbins and start in with a vegetable peeler.

Bethzaring - how cold will that keep the tender veggie to? You ever put heat in there?

We have very little growing space, a 2 foot wide strip next to our driveway where we have chives, parsley and thyme growing.
However, I have a small space for tomato plants. I have one plant I put in in late February. It is now 7 feet high and 4 feet around, and full of tomatoes
