Welcome to my super awesome garden tour. Since I’ve already reached my goal of growing 2,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables in my backyard garden this year, I’ve decided to let loose a bit and give that evil OCD monster in my head a rest for a while.
After all, it’s nearly December, and that means it’s time to put down the trowel, dig out the stretchy pants and moo moo dresses, and eat cookies for the next month. Right?
But don’t worry, I haven’t given up gardening completely. In fact there is still tons to see in the garden this time of year. For instance…
I have 2 pots of Rosemary growing in my greenhouse. Sure, they’re the only things in there right now, but it won’t be long before the greenhouse starts to fill up again.
This patch of dirt is a great place to meditate and gather inspiration for next years garden.
And check out these garden boxes. Aren’t they looking sweet? Straw is all over the place, some are empty, weeds are popping up everywhere, I bet Martha Stewart’s backyard garden looks exactly like mine this time of year.
Check out all this kale! I thought about pulling the kale up, but decided to wait until Christmas morning. I’m sure the chickens would love finding a giant mound of it under their Christmas tree.
So even though things look a little rough right now, don’t worry, good things are on the horizon. I’m really excited about my new goals for the 2013 growing season, and can’t wait to share them with you soon.
Peace Out Garden Scouts, I’m off to eat another cookie.
