Gardening in Winter

My Winter Vegetable Garden


Winter is cold and wet and can be difficult to get motivated and out in the weather.  It is worth it though, to be able to harvest your lovely produce in the coming months. If you have not done so yet, I urge you to brave the weather and get planting now!

Come and take a wander through my garden. This is what it looks like at the moment.

It is quiet, peaceful, set with small plants, resting in the wet gloomy weather.


A Fresh Legacy Herb Patch

My herb patch has just been trimmed back. It has lemongrass, parsley, oregano, saw tooth coriander, rosemary, lemon thyme, common thyme, garlic and chilli, sage and chives planted. A gorgeous lemon tree stands in front of it and the mosaic was made for me by my gorgeous mum for my birthday.

Vegetable Patch 3

This is Vegetable Patch 3 – it is planted with potatoes, rocket, an artichoke, onions and leeks 

Vegetable Patch 2


I love the way the peas cling onto their supports. These are planted in vegetable patch 2 along with capsicums holding on still from summer, rocket, chilli, and beetroot, and spinach

Vegetable Patch 1

Vegetable Patch 1 is planted with spinach, lettuce, onion and garlic, some carrots and a capsicum plant from summer. 

Winter hibernation for Mr Scarecrow

Mr Scarecrow has a rest over Winter. Don’t ask me why as the birds ate all of my carrot and spinach seedlings. It just seems wrong to have him get all wet….

What is happening in your winter garden? I would love to hear what you have planted.

    I’m trying to get motivated to get out into my veggie patch more. I did plant some carrots last week which have sprouted, and been helping to trelis my snow peas as they grow. Maybe making a scarecrow with the kids to put out in spring will motivate us!
