Garden Tour

Here's an overview of the mostly winter garden. The first 2 beds as you enter (from the right) are broccoli...and the artichoke is in the wine bottle bed.

Future DG walkway....maybe in the Spring.

Still cleaning up some of the beds, gotta love Bermuda grass!

Cabbage and Leeks

Not sure why some are kind of stunted.

Onions in front (we planted close to 180) and the back bed is peas and carrots.

With the ever popular crushed egg shells as snail deterrent.

Just today I picked the last of the Butternut squash hiding in the 24lbs. total from 6 plants.
Makes great pumpkin pie:)

The tomato plants look pretty good....

...tho I'm not sure if the fruit will ever turn red in this cold. I'll probably bring them in and set them on our windowsill.

Peas and Spinach

Future potato bed in the foreground.....

Peas and broccoli against the fence.

View from the back - Lettuce and broccoli in the foreground and the bed back between the squash and tomatoes is more onions....not sure why I ordered so many....hope they store well!
