Mirabile dictu

Tonight we had an all-garden salad. I picked some rouge d'hiver lettuce from the little bread loaf shaped plastic cloches plus corn salad and mustard greens, added some sprouts from indoors. We also had tomato sauce on the pasta from September's tomato harvest, frozen. Very satisfying to go out in the February light on an admittedly warm day and pick salad from the garden, know there are sprouts growing inside too. The great truth: certain green things want to stay alive and even grow in the winter, with some light, with some protection. Mirabile dictu.
