Fiore Time

046Christmas is almost here and so is the rain. Business is slow giving us time to make jams and seasoning salts  and to tend to the garden. I normally love the rain, but with our dining room completely exposed i don’t like it too much.Our crops sure do. The cauliflower and broccoli are rising tall They are firm and healthy and should be ready to harvest in a few weeks. I laid seeds on  Monday in 3 of the beds. I scattered, fennel, ciccoria and raddicchio seeds. We use lots of raddicchio so I am hopeful we’ll reap a nice crop.
