Winter Garden

I know most of you are getting ready for snow and some really cold weather, but here in the desert our Falls are just perfect temps in the 70's and time to plant a winter garden.



 DH has this side of the garden all tilled and ready for planting, but as you can see the side behind him still needs a ton of work.  That's our compost pile on the top right. Right above the lettuce he's planted onions and garlic, and below the lettuce we have carrots and radishes.


 Four types of lettuce all planted.   The other side he will plant beans against the fence, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, broccoli and  eggplant will go in the beds when he gets them tilled.

Love the fresh lettuce and veggies from the garden.  They taste sooooooooo good.  In another couple of weeks we will be eating radishes and clipping some of the lettuce.  Can't wait.

Do you grow a winter garden?

  1. Oh I would LOVE to have a winter garden! We only keep a summer one for now. Nothing better than growing your own veggies!

  2. Marty I don't grow a winter garden, but I have had lettuce in a pot before, that was fun to go out and clip off greens for our salad. You have inspired me to do that again!!! thanks,
    Happy Sunday sweet lady,
    Love you,

  3. I have a winter garden with all the stuff you have, except for eggplant. It would freeze here about November. When do you get freezing weather-or do you. What variety of peas do you plant?

  4. Too funny...here in the Midwest, we just harvested the last of the tomatoes and pulled up all the remaining plants. It's amazing to me how each region is so different. Blessings...Pam

  8. Oh, my! Winter garden sounds like such an oxymoron. I wish I could. What a foreign concept. And it stays warm enough til eggplants are ready? How great!

  11. Hi Marty! Oh, this is exciting! We are going to try and plant to tomatoes and see how they do. My daughter really has a green thumb and we ate her lettuce, carrots and beets. Well, I didn't eat the beets but Mr. Precious did! :)
    Thanks for popping in and hope you're having a great weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  12. That's so wonderful Marty! We just "harvested" the last of our garden and I miss it already. You definitely are taking advantage of the climate and enjoying it to the fullest! :-)
