I've been asked to begin a blog that shows a "how-to" for the things that bring pleasure to my life. So, the intent of this blog is to share recipes, gardening, composting, sewing, crafts, art, everyday projects and even psychology tips to aid in healing wounds and living the life you're meant to live, a life with purpose!

Winter Garden: What you can plant in a winter weather Garden. Chart for cold seasonal gardening.

The beautiful flourishing summer garden is now a winter garden. Onions, Garlic, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens, Kale, Swiss chard, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage and Herbs are the winter vegetables that are still continuing. The Herbs that are hardy and remain are: Mint, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Sage, Chives and Garlic. If you would like to see some color throughout the winter; I also have decorative Kales and Cabbages in my front lawn. If you decide to plant them, however, do so where deer cannot eat them. This year mine are now nubs…
There are certain vegetables that are best suited to a winter vegetable garden.

Simply look on the back of your seed packet if you are going to grow a second crop for the year, note how much time the plants need to get to maturity before the first frost and plan accordingly. There is nothing like getting the fresh produce from your garden all year long!
