So, on Tuesday, I made homemade beef pho. It was wonderful. Do you know why it was more wonderful? Because it was December 1st – and I was able to sprinkle chopped handfuls of cilantro, japanese mustard, arugula, parsley, and mint on it. I can’t believe all that stuff is still growing! It’s been cold and rainy (although today’s sunny and unseasonably warm in the high 50s) but mostly there’s NO SUN in the back garden – yet the Cascadia Pea plants are 2+ feet high and the dill is growing like crazy!
