I can't say that I have put a lot of effort into my winter garden again this year. There are beds that have bare spots that I could have planted and haven't. On the long bed I planted the seeds grew at first then all died off except on one end and I need to replant something in there, just haven't gotten to it. Christmas is taking up more of my time this year. I normally don't really like Christmas that much. It stresses me to try to get things for everyone but with the invent of online shopping things have gotten so much easier so that this year my Christmas spirit is quite a bit better. I even sent out cards and I haven't sent out cards for 15 years!
Anyway, back to the garden. I haven't even gotten down to my garden all week and even today I only took pictures and didn't do any actual gardening work. I might not have even gotten down to the garden except I could see from the driveway that the plants had grown quite substantially since I had last visited, probably due to the nice rain we finally got this week.
We'll start on the porch with a picture of the lettuce and kale again. It is doing quite well. Now this really isn't enough lettuce for a salad but it makes nice lettuce to add to sandwiches. The kale can be added to any soup, stew or quiche if we don't get enough for a meal but we may get enough between the pot here and some that is growing in that half bed in the garden.
