I planted carrots, onions, turnips, collards, and lettuce yesterday. I'll probably add potatoes, celery, peas, and cucumbers next month. According to the Farmer's Almanac Gardening by the Moon Calender, there are some good days in December for those.
I've added a plant house to keep the dog out. Maybe I'll get to eat turnips this time. The last turnips that ripened in my garden were spirited away and buried in parts unknown. When I went out to harvest them...all I found were holes. I'm suspecting my eggplant, that just beginning to grow, met with the same fate. (I can't imagine a dog eat a raw eggplant. They're really bitter.)
