Winter Garden

Well it's been a while.  It's near the end of September, so it's starting to cool off.  Winter gardens are cool because:

  • Less watering, the rain will take care of that. Just proper drainage during heavier rains.  
  • Soft soil, it is much easier to work with once it soaks up some moisture.
  • A wide variety of plants can be grown.  Around here it's prefect for broccoli  spinach, lettuce, carrots etc... 
  • Keeps food coming from the garden year-round! 

I just planted some carrots and spinach in a raised bed.  Gonna see how that goes.
