Winter Gardening

August 01, 2011

I dream of having a beautiful potager with all sorts of vegetables and flowers growing side by side, with pebbled pathways leading into our home orchard of heritage trees where we can pick nutritious goodies for our family... however, in reality our tiny wee garden has only allowed us a few pots of herbs and tomatoes.  
This year we decided to put in a little raised bed where I can grow some summer crops and my honey can take over all the pots for his herbs.  He does most of the cooking at our place and herbs do feature rather strongly so growing more of our own does sound like a good idea.  

I am so excited about having a garden. Even though it is only two metres long you would think I had won the lottery :)  

We spent Saturday morning constructing and filling our bed with garden mix and by Sunday the sun was out,  so enjoyed a family outing to the garden shop for some seeds and herbs.

So far my honey has some pineapple sage, a few varieties of parsley and thyme, watercress, valerian, and mint.  

I'm looking forward to planting my vegetables when the weather gets a little warmer.  In the meantime I'll be digging in some compost so everything will be ready. I hope to share some more pics when the seedlings go in.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.
