Gardening in Winter
June 26, 2012
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.
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.
This is Vegetable Patch 3 – it is planted with potatoes, rocket, an artichoke, onions and leeks
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 is planted with spinach, lettuce, onion and garlic, some carrots and a capsicum plant from summer.
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.
