>> Sunday, January 6, 2013 – winter
Yesterday was the first Saturday of the month, and that means a visit to Schalfly Gardenworks.
It's not as lush and green as it was this summer of course, but there's still quite a lot going on.
It's fun to just meet with other gardeners once a month, see what's new, pick up little tips. What made the trip extra worthwhile though was the free manure:
I wish my truck could dump like that.
As the small group of dedicated gardeners got ready to start shoveling manure into bags, I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of the now-empty garden.
|Garlic - lots of it!|
|Greens waiting for a warm-up to start growing again|
|Kale and spinach under row covers for those few cold nights|
|The new hoophouse. Beautiful swiss chard!|
|The focus of this garden is food production, but it's |
beautiful too, even now. What garden isn't?
Here's the entire garden:
Looks much different than it did back in June, doesn't it?
I got at least one great tip from this gathering, and it's nice to see who the diehard gardeners are, showing up on a 30ºF (-1ºC) morning. See you again next month!
