Colorful winter vegetables
I'm adapting a program about creative and attractive vegetable gardening to focus on urban vegetable gardening (for a talk next week) and came across a photo I took of a mid-winter vegetable planting last December. Impressive, partially because there hadn't a long hard period of freezing temperatures.
Our gardens (in the piedmont of SC and the mountains of NC) are increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, is now putting his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
I reduce the sizes of most images, but they're still bigger than what's seen on the blog (click to enlarge!)
