Winter In The Garden

We have great gardening weather this winter allowing us to enjoy our winter vegetables just that much longer. It gets exciting this time of the year in the garden, getting the soil ready for spring planting and looking through all the seed catalogs that just show up at the right time. Curling up with a nice cup of tea and all the seed catalogs, a great way to spend a cold afternoon.

There Seems To Be An Endless Supply of Seed Catalogs

Purple Kale at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

This Purple Kale lives very well in the flower beds as well as in the garden.
We use it in salads and different dishes, the color and the taste is awesome.

We love our Collard Greens here at The Cottage
I really enjoy going out to the garden and gathering a basket of Collards for dinner.
This is one of my favorite recipes for the collards.

The Fern of The Fennel is beautiful and bright.
Just right for a sprinkling into a recipe or garnish.

This Mint Bed is in a protected and sunny area.
It produces all winter, great fresh mint anytime.

We have a garden supervisor today, Max is making sure these onions get the right treatment.
The ground was prepared with our homemade compost that we have the year round.
This is a post to check out how we make our compost.
