Winter Urban Garden: Salad time!
February 8, 2016
Dateline: 2016-01-21 As promised in the last post, this one is all about the fruits (well, technically vegetables) of our garden labor. The lettuce has gotten ripe, very ripe. In fact I suspect that it was allowed to go slightly too long. Some of the leaves were starting to yellow and overall the plants were starting to get unruly. So let the nom begin.
Planting the Winter Urban Garden
December 16, 2015
Dateline: 2015-11-24 Time was of the essence. The trip to Half Moon Bay Nursery was a huge success and lots of plants were ready to be planted. However there was a kink in the works, by the end of the night we’d be off to our Thanksgiving holiday. Being gone for the better part of a week without getting our sproutlings in the ground sounded like a Bad Idea™ so the clock was ticking to start planting. Since there was no time to waste, I started planting first thing in the morning.
The sadness of Home Depot gardening
November 16, 2015
This weekend was supposed to be the start of the Winter Garden series, so a jaunt to Home Depot was in order for some new (more winter friendly plants). As you can see on the right, that didn’t go so well. The pictured area is the open area of the Home Depot nursery where they normally have rows of plants. I realize it’s a little late to get started, but winter hasn’t even arrived in full force yet!
