Happy Holidays Everyone!

Well it is that time of year again. The garden has come to a close and I have started to think of next season. That topic will have to wait however because tonight I would like to say Happy Holidays to everyone. I'll be looking forward to following everyone's garden next year and hopefully I will be a bit more diligent blogging about my garden. Below are a few shots I took tonight of local christmas lights, you may notice that we are snowless this year:

.......and I can't resist adding a shot of Charlie:

Harvest Monday


Here is this years potato harvest. The harvest was a little dismal. I didn't plant a lot of them and what was planted had a rather low yield. The ones I planted in my half-barrel did the best by far.

This weeks main garden task will be to plant the garlic. It is rather late to plant garlic but in the past I have had good results from late plantings. I also have to get my season extenders in the garden. I cleaned them all up last weekend. There is not much point in planting them at this time but I should be able to get something growing in them by late February.

At the moment all that is growing in the garden is broccoli. I'll have to check what is worth harvesting this week.

Happy Gardening Everyone!
