We stopped by the garden today to check on things, and I remembered the camera so we snapped a few pictures of our tiny little veggies.  This is our first attempt at a winter garden (and only my second attempt at gardening, period :oO) so it’s definitely been a learning adventure!  I’m just so glad to see little spurts of green beneath the hay (laid that out to protect the sprouts since we got such a late start).  We do have an ‘arctic cold front’ forecast to visit us next week, so I’m hoping to find a way to protect the little guys through that.  Luckily the nice people in charge of the community garden project are very knowledgeable and helpful, so I’m sure they can help me come up with something.  And now, without further ado…

clockwise from top left: beet, tiny carrot, and cauliflower

There were also some leeks, scallions, and onions growing, but they were all too small to photograph!  We planted broccoli and cabbage as well, but I don’t think any of them sprouted.  They were on the far end of the garden and the hay was constantly getting blown off, so if they did sprout they may not have made it due to the weather.
