Winter is in full swing.
Get your garden soil ready for next spring.
Get your catalogs out for next years planting. Some catalog suggestions below.
For California growers you can bring the plants close to the house to avoid the occasional frost. Plant broccoli, carrots, cauliflower,spinach,cabbage, bok choy, peas and lettuce for your winter garden.You will want to start your winter garden in Sept.- Nov. There is no hard fast rule, sometimes gardening is trial and error. I didn't plant one this year because I traveled during December.
I am enlarging my garden for this coming season. I want to put in two more above ground boxes. I am planning the layout and rotations now. I'm going to scan the catalogs to try something new or different varieties.
My sister in law planted these. Next year I may try planting beans too!
Growing beans are SO rewarding. You can use in soups on cold winter days.
Some great catalogs for seeds 2013 are Territorial Seed Company, The Cook's Garden for seeds and plants, Burpee, AND Gardeners Supply.
Happy planting!!! Thanks to my sister in law Ann, for all her hard work, planning, teaching and inspiring me to love gardening.
