The Winter Garden

I finally got the majority of the winter garden seeds in yesterday. It’s hard to plant with Harriet climbing the garden walls and trying to feast on the Hens and Chicks.  I still need to get the winter potatoes in and some more beets, cilantro, fava beans, peas and more carrots. I’d better get on it. It’s already mid July. 

It’s so hard to pull out summer vegetables that aren’t quite finished. I need to plant onions in a bed that still has a lovely block of chard in it. It’s going to seed but I’ve been enjoying some delicious chard with eggs for breakfast and I don’t really want to pull it out. I do have a lot of kale and beet greens that I’m leaving in the garden so I suppose I could just switch to having those with my eggs.
