Winter Garden 2014 Update

Here is the garden after 18 days.  Things are looking pretty good.  I did lose a few seedling of Buttercrunch lettuce; I guess they were just too tiny when I planted them.  I have seeded the empty spots with more.

Healthy looking Sorrel and a few of the Chinese Cabbage plants to the right, I have 12 of these planted.

Freckles Romaine Lettuce

Here are 6 Brussels Sprout plants.  Tony put these in and should have given them 2 feet between each plant; I will move some of them this week. 

Kohlrabi seedlings will be thinned out this weekend.

Graffiti, a purple Cauliflower 6 plants

Purple Russian Winter Kale 6 plants

Lacinato  Kale 6 more plants plus the big ones below.

I will probably pull on the taller kale here as it is starting to fall over.

My beloved San Marzano Tomato plant still growing and even has a few tomatoes on it.

Lots of lettuce plants!

More lettuce

And more....

a few more


and yes, still more! We eat a lot of greens

Snow Peas

Ruby Red Swiss Chard

That's it for now, I will post again in a couple of weeks.  This week we have Santana winds and high temperatures.  Today was 89 and tomorrow will be 90!  Welcome to winter in San Diego County!


  1. I see lots of greens in your future dishes. We are taking a gardening break, so I will enjoy watching your winter garden grow.

    1. Hi Ann, if I could grow all of this in the summer I would be taking a winter break also!

  2. Our garden has shut down for the winter

    1. That will give you some time to browse the seed catalogs for next year, Doc.


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
