My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

January salad
Well I've been missing in action due to a very nasty computer virus and just getting back online. My thanks to those of you who came by and commented on my last post; hopefully I'll get around to everyone this week.  This is also why I didn't get a Seedy Saturday post done!

Harvest Monday is a blog hop sponsored by Daphne over at Daphne's Dandelions. Stop over and visit with gardeners around the world as they share what they are harvesting from their gardens.

Lettuce production has slowed down a bit with the cold temps and low light. This fall I will plant more square footage to make sure I have enough come January. In the meantime things in the greenhouse are getting big enough to begin picking and there are still a couple of little tomatoes on the Yellow Marble plant. In the meantime it's time to start new plants from seed in the house. I'm thinking about taking some cuttings from the Yellow Marble, as a couple of branches still have green leaves on them.

The days are getting a bit longer and have been pretty warm this past week. I'm hoping for a mild but rainy spring and summer!


  1. Glad you are back! Every year I vow to plant more fall crops so I have more to get us through the winter. It always ends up being about the same though because of losses etc. Some day my plans will work out just as I imagined - but I am not holding my breath! LOL!

  2. Glad your back! There never seems to be enough lettuce around our garden either this time of year. It gets so cold here that we can only really grow spinach, mache and chard this time of year.

  3. I would be happy with spinach, mache and chard, just didn't plant enough of those either ;-)
