Because, really, what better way to plan for next year than when your garden groweth NOW?
We needs more peas next winter. A little later outside than Janus' month. We certainly need more spinach, and there container gardening is likely the best answer.
More staggering of major items like peppers and tomatoes. And melons!
" Lawds, yes! Mooon!-- that spells..." a metric butload of cantaloupe and 2 varieties of watermelon showing up all just too late for any backyard 4 Julius celebratory.
And the zucch's. And more yellow crookneck.
The pole beans would benefit from 8' tall trellises.
And another bed. 16x8. North grassy area-- get good enough sun all early spring afore the surrounding trees leaf&blossom to cover the peas-and-brassicas expansion!
Other than that-- and watching how much of the back 4 gardens sink unto the 7th Circle-- not a lot going on. Time to gather and prepare une petitte super:
- Cabbage leaves
- Onions. Baby squash
- Shredded cheese, browned breakfast sausage. Spices to your heart's content
- Spoon sauteed ingredients in cabbage leaves. Roll.
Bake. Savor.Vino, anyone?
