Winter Update on our Zesty Garden
Find & Fix it Friday
Remember that garden we planted last year? We have LOVED being able to walk out to the garden and grab herbs or kale for our blog, but it’s time to give it some more love in these “winter” months. You will notice the bunny ears around “winter” because like my post yesterday admitted- we here in Cali are soaking up our rays. This will be confirmed when you see our choice of wardrobe below- but hey, what you gonna do other than seize the moment and pick up a shovel!? Chanda and I have been tackling each garden box one by one covering the main outside with galvanized steel and wood- more on this project to come. But for today we will focus on planting some new friends. Billy was THE MAN and hooked us up with a tractor load of gorgeous mushroom compost right to our garden, quite some service! Let’s dig in and get dirty….
Here is a little before of what all the boxes currently look like on the left, today we tackled the box on the right to give it a facelift.
We plan to stain the wood to give a gorgeous distressed look too!
We pulled up all our old eggplants and chives and after making a quick stop to Miners we snagged some new greens…
Beets, arugula, swiss chard, red lettuce, peas, strawberries- oh my I can’t wait to watch these babies grow!
While we were all hard at work Miss Maya was being our watch dog.
We are giddy with excitement about the status of our artichokes!! Remember how small they were here?
I guess it’s not really a flower bed anymore, huh?
