Garden Update!


What a dreary rainy day.

We accomplished so much in the garden yesterday!
My hubs has one more raised bed to build ... 
following deconstruction of a small deck.
It will be prepared for growing herbs and greens!

I'm committed to spending lots of time 
in my art studio this week.
(Procrastinating)
Maybe I'll include watercolors of these pics!
Last of the Fall/Winter harvest!
Except for the collard greens.  
They are still producing!


Swiss Chard


Purple Cabbage



GARDEN UPDATE:

Still growing:
We have little strawberries everywhere!
Onions and Garlic are just beginning to change 
from green to a light beige on the tips.
Kale has doubled in size.
Collards are still producing (we've been 
harvesting weekly for nearly five months!)
Mints (5 varieties), chives, parsley and 
cilantro still growing since last spring!
Mixed lettuces  - We've been eating from our 
back porch salad mix since last spring!  
      Every few weeks I just sow more seed in to the mix!

  1. I'm so jealous! Chomping at the bit waiting for May to come so we can start our planting. Next on my "honey please" list is a deck green house. Someone we know has a friend who built one using old sliding windows on his deck. gotta get me one for some herbs and greens :) I LOVE fresh dill on my salad!

  2. I wish the weather here would be favorable to gardening, but at 115 not too much grows. You plant list is enviable. Have a good day.
