My winter garden pics

  • I took some pictures of my winter garden last Saturday. With my new teaching career, I don’t spend as much time in my garden as I used to, but it still so freely gives! Gardens are so unselfish like that. I find it relaxing and peaceful every time I step into my garden. Cabbage is a slow-growing vegetable but always so pretty and thank goodness it grows through cold winters! My grandson loves sugar snap peas so I am anxious to pick them with him in the spring.

    My favorite fire pit picture below. I have used this type of fire pit for years. I visit a junk yard and ask for the insides of an old washing machine. I seem to get it for free too! The fires are just beautiful in them. I have moved it to my garden with two benches and I love it.

    Wishing you the best this winter growing season!

    Absolutely love your garden photographs! What do you use, if anything, on your cabbage to protect them from the cabbage worms & moths? We have had a slight issue with these over the years.

  • I really love the idea of using the washing machine tub for a fire pit. Do they last for very long though? I have one from a large piece of corrugated metal pipe that I salvaged from a job when I was working. It has lasted many years and looks like it will last many more. Very sturdy but not very pretty to look at….. Hank

  • Found you via The LIttle Acre that Could and I’m so happy I did! Love your ideas and philosophy. Fabulous repurposing of the old washing machine tub. Thanks for the inspiration! I’d love for you to share this post on The Maple Hill Hop!

  • Found you on Pinterest, and I’m so glad I did! I live in Katy, and while work has kept me from gardening this winter, I am recommitting to the project this spring. Nice to see someone from our odd climate with a gardening blog! I’ll be back, for sure!

  • Michelle,
    Thanks for the the comment! I am so excited to get my spring garden in and have tomatoes this summer! Good luck to you!
