The winter garden brings such joy and bounty. Here’s a hastily gathered basket that my son took home. His wife, Sarah will be pleased. The first of the seed-grown kohlrabi was ready for harvest this week.
The four new Corten steel raised beds, completed last September make gardening so easy. At almost two feet high I can sit on a garden stool to plant and tend.
The soil is loose and rich and with plentiful rain, the harvests have been spectacular. I’m about ten weeks out from a total knee replacement so I’ve been able to garden, at first in a limited way, since two weeks post-op.
The lettuces and other greens thrive in our frequent rains and salads are almost daily artistic assemblages.
Some of the orange things in the garden yesterday–tangerine, kumquats and calendula.
And here’s what I gathered for a bouquet over the weekend: California poppies, freesia, snowflakes, sweet peas, calendulas.
