Photo #2: Kales, onions, more peas (including a few Sugar Ann plants that just started flowering), young carrots, mustard greens

Photo #3: More garlic, young cilantro, young dill, young carrots

It’s a bit hard to believe that I’ll be planting out tomatoes, basil, and more in just 2-and-a-half weeks!

I weeded the vegetable garden and the beds and paths around the back patio this afternoon, and then removed sod from part of the yard in preparation for planting the Keiffer pear that I bought from Lowes a few weeks ago. The biting gnats were out in force tonight!




impressive winter garden!

Thanks! It’s great to live in a climate where this is possible.

Your garden looks so pretty and organized – straight out of a book or magazine!

@HazelJ: When I look at my garden, my focus tends to be on deciding what needs to be harvested or weeded or how to change the current set-up to improve things next year or which space needs filling next and with what. DH looks at my vegetable garden entirely as a source of food. Your comment caused me to step back for a moment, look at my garden from a less constructive-criticism perspective, and smile. Thank you! :)
