Yesterday Lucy the Puggle Dog and I ventured out in the wind and the rain to see how our winter crops were coming along in the greenhouse. I was originally planning to buy some sort of heater this winter so I’d be able to grow more vegetables, but I just never got around to it.
Lots and lots of lettuce. Not only do we have it growing in two large stock tanks, but we also have lettuce growing in a couple of garden pots as well.
I think we still have a few more weeks to go before we can harvest anything because the temperatures outside are still pretty chilly, but it will be worth the wait for sure. Being able to grow you own lettuce greens in the winter is just plain RAD if you ask me.
Oh and remember how I thought I was growing spinach in the greenhouse? Well it turns out I was growing turnips. Ha! I guess turnips don’t like to be grown in pots though. I planted the greenhouse seeds around the same time as I planted the ones outside in our garden boxes and those ones are HUGE, these, not so much. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
Oh and check out the herbs! Right now we have rosemary, oregano, thyme and purple sage ready to harvest. The oregano and sage is a little iffy, but this time of year if you want to eat from your garden you can’t be to picky now can you? 😉
How is YOUR garden doing right now?
