January Garden

The absolute beautiful, warm sunny day inspired me to go work down 
in the greenhouse. The temps inside the plastic was a 
balmy 60 degrees
and on the outside a tolerable 36 degrees.
The sun is amazing. This winter is amazing!!
I could live here if every winter is this nice. . .
but considering I don't have any choice,
I'll take the lovely weather.

We are over the hump and everything is encouraging us towards spring.
I cleaned out some old plants to make rooms for early plantings
to be seeded in a couple weeks.
The cold hardy crops;
have outdone the lettuces by far.
NO! Goosey! We don't plant for your benefit.

Mr. Gander has developed a misguided romantic attachment towards me.
Silly goose!

  3. Hi - thanks for coming over to my place :)

    Mizuna and kale seem to have been 2 of the stars of the winter here in the UK as well. I hope goosey takes care of the slugs and snails in future and not your salad!

    We get together every 24th Friday of the month for a round up of how everyone's getting on with their salad challenge if you're interested. The next one's on March 23rd. I've put a link to your post in this month's, so people get a chance to come over and see you :)
