Preparing fall and winter garden
May 10, 2012
Well, my summer garden isn't even in full swing yet, but I am preparing the fall and winter garden. I am learning that with gardening, a person must stay very ahead of the seasons. I ordered a mix of garlic bulbs and hearty winter greens. I have some other seed ready too, like Watermelon radish, carrots and some other greens from trades. Of course I ordered more peas, snow peas this time, because my husband adores eating the fresh spring peas in his stirfry. We made another order pronto.
I am finding that there is very little information out there on winter fall gardens and I have to wonder if it is because most people don't put the effort into that gardening. It also seems like every source I find for winter gardens is actually a source for a fall garden. Do people not see the difference? Or is there no difference? I want to eat from our garden year round, so for me it is imperative. I am sketchy about timing and what can stay in the garden through the winter rains and snows. I am just playing it by ear. My garden story this year should have read, "gardening by trial and error".
