I am late posting photos of my winter garden plantings that took place a couple of weeks ago. Of course had I taken the pics then there wouldn't be anything in the pictures but soil! It doesn't look like much right now but when the little guys grow up the plot will be covered in goodies for us to eat all winter.
We are still using the area along the driveway this year and probably next year, since we used the adobe bricks from the raised beds for the labyrinth; I don't have that space to use right now. This area gets a lot of sun and I can easily work the ground from both sides. We used one of the tomato cages for the peas and green beans; I think this will work out pretty well and I can always add a tall fence around the cage to give the peas more room to spread and hold onto if need be. I still have another section (past the kale) to dig up and amend the soil with compost, then I will plant more of the same things but a few weeks later. This way I am not harvesting all at once. Sucession planting!
|Snow Peas and Green Beans on the cage, Easter Egg Radishes, French Breakfast Radishes and Round Black Spanish Radish.|
|Snow Pea shoots, in the back area there are onion seedlings. I used the seed heads and just sprinkled them along the parimeter of the row. I will probably need to separate some of them as they get larger.|
|In this area we have a french Carrot called Parisienne from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds that is short variety. I also planted Cilantro, Parsley and Dill somewhere in the space. LOL|
|Same area, with Gourmet Baby Greens, Mesclum Sassy Salad Mix, and Arugula.|
|Last seasons Swiss Chard looking sad, but it will now do much better with the cooler nights. Also a section of onion sets in the foreground. I planted many of these a month or so ago and then more on this day.|
|Bright Lights Swiss Chard and More of the Red Chard.|
|Mesclun and Salad Bowl Blend|
|Pencil Pod Yellow Beans, a bush variety.|
