Backyard Garden Plot Pictures – Week 48 of 52
It’s hard to believe it’s December and our backyard garden is still alive and kicking. The fava beans we planted this past fall are doing great. We also have carrots, beets, Swiss chard, kale garlic, leeks and turnips growing in the garden boxes.
I know it doesn’t look like much, but our lasagna garden is coming along pretty nicely. Right now it’s about 20′ square and about 8 inches high. WHen it comes time to plant the area in the spring I’ll divide it up into 4 square garden beds and put in a nice walking path.
I spotted a few poppy plants coming up nearby.
Right now we have lettuce, spinach, beets, peas and a lemon tree growing in the greenhouse. I went to The Home Depot to look for some citrus fertilizer for Lemon, the lemon tree but all I could find were fertilizer spikes. I might have to end up buying the citrus fertilizer online instead.

I guess it’s time to prune the Shasta Daisy bushes.
They look so cozy until all those little mounds of dirt… I don’t want to disturb them.
And last but not least, the view from the back of the raspberry patch.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who would rather stay inside right now and plan next years garden then hang outside all day pulling weeds. That’s normal for this time of year, right?
This years garden is being sponsored by the awesome folks at Botanical Interests Seed Company. You can check out their website HERE, order their new 2013 Garden Seed Catalog HERE, or visit my online boyfriend Ryan’s blog HERE.
