Winter Gardening! I have never had a winter garden until this year! I did alot of research and asked a ton of questions! I decided I should start out small. I decided just to use a small area of my large summer garden. My lil one and I planted Swiss Chard, Red onions, Walla Walla,Torpedo Onions, Celery, Spinach, Peas,Carrots, Parsley, Garlic,Turnips,Bok Choy & multiple Lettuces. We still have Brocolli and Kale and Brussel sprouts to plant. Which I am hoping to get done today! We have had such wonderful weather here in Cali that we are still picking Peppers! Heres a few Pictures of our makeshift winter garden.
Are small makeshift Winter Garden!
Swiss Chard! I love the red! Adds such brightness to dark cold winter days.
A clump of Peas! Hopefully the other seeds will sprout soon!
Bok Choy! I love this in stir frys and my homemade eggrolls!
Celery! Great with peanut butter and in soups. I will be drying the leaves after I pick them! They will taste great in my homemade stock.
Baby Spinach! We eat alot of this in so many things! I have it planted everywhere throughout the garden.
Red Onion! The rest of my backyard is a mess! We are Re-Landscaping ourselves and its a HUGE project, but we will get there.
Here is our Salad Bar! Red Leaf Lettuce, Romaine and Spinach! I do lots of growing in Wheel Burrows and old dresser drawers! The dresser drawers are growing Garlic Chives and Parsley.
