Winter Gardening...

On Gabriola we have a temperate climate which affords us great opportunities when it comes to winter gardening. This year I took the opportunity to plant my first winter garden, and am enjoying the opportunity to harvest amazing vegetables. Fresh out of the garden yesterday was a bunch of beets, kale, brussel sprouts, celery & swiss chard. It's wonderful to be able to harvest from one's own back yard throughout the year, and unlike the challenges (weeds & water) that the summertime garden brings, the winter garden requires very little effort.

West Coast seeds has already delivered their 2012 calendar, and now that Spring is right around the corner, it's not to early to start planning for next years harvest & the new seed varities that are tempting to try....

Happy New Year!
