My new vegetable garden is in raised beds for ease of management in my "old age." I spent this morning harvesting lettuce, beets, and spinach that were just going to seed.
We started the raised beds along the fence line in winter, and harvested sweet broccoli, spinach and multitudes of Swiss chard. I even tried my hand at some winter lettuce (romaine) but it didn’t like the cold wind here.
How long have you been gardening?
I have been gardening as long as I can remember. My mother kept 3/4 of an acre of garden, and I grew up in a paradise surrounded by fragrant flowers and shrubs. Gardens are such a sensory experience to me, and I love to touch as much as I love to look and smell.
Warren likes New Zealand natives, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. His gardening goes back a long way, too.
Four planter bins, looking up the row one to four. First row: perpetual spinach, long red beets. Second row: red mini cabbage, mini white cauliflower, lemon thyme creeping over the corner. Third row: ‘Cardiff’ leeks, mizuna (winter lettuce), red beets, snow peas. Fourth row: perpetual spinach, ‘White Lisbon’ green onions.
