Hi all! The last of the tomatoes are ripening around here, so I’ve pulled out every non-fruiting plant in my little patch of soil. I figure it’s time to get into winter planting mode. I planted a ground cover last year, so I’m still not sure what veggies will grow best where. It takes so long to work out what a garden wants…
Winter plants are some of my favorite to eat, and I’m hoping to try out growing a few new favorites. I’m planting:
❤ Spinach. Two kinds: Baby and Monster
❤ Cilantro: I’ve also sprinkled my garden with the seeds of my dried-out cilantro from last spring.
❤ Chard and Kale: My two favorites! I already have a few plants growing, but kale always tastes better with a good frost!
❤ Brussel Sprouts: I have to admit. I love Brussels. I’ve never grown them before, and I can’t wait to see them flower.
❤ Lettuce: My favorites are any with purple or red, especially butter lettuce.
I always try to grow purple plants, I might even pick up some more purple kale. Do you have a winter garden?
