Winter Garden

After enjoying my summer garden, this is what remains - chives and swiss chard. I pulled out the overly-enthusiastic broccoli and Steven helped me mix up all the dirt with some fresh compost.

For the winter I am going to try my hand at Basil, Leeks, Lettuce and Kale.

Pretty nifty rows I made, huh?!

Hard to believe these tiny seeds are going to make great meals. Hopefully.

Good luck! I hope your planting works better than mine did this year. It was a total disaster. We have water restriction so aren't allowed to water. Nothing I planted took. :-(

You're lucky. I love fresh basil. Kale, eh, maybe not so much.

Your hand looks HUGE with those tiny seeds in it.

I'm with Big Daddy on this one...a garden in winter sounds crazy and foreign to me. Have fun gardening!

You inspire me.

I'm so jealous that you get to grow veggies over the winter. I was stoked that my potted basil plants transitioned indoors, but leeks? . . . oh, if only.
