I bet no one would’ve guessed that I would be doing a blog post about our garden during the month of January…lol!
Today is a beautiful, but chilly day here in the Northwest. I decided to take a closer look at the veggie beds that have been laying dormant since fall. There is nothing too pretty about the picture above, but underneath those leaves there is still life in the garden!
When I push aside the deep pile of rotting leaves there is still bright, beautiful carrots that have been protected from the freezing temperatures that we have been having this winter.
And not to be outdone by the carrots, the beets are showing off their almost fluorescent, fuchsia colored stems.
The garlic that we planted last fall is poking its way through the soil and will provide us with plenty of cloves later this year.
The Lemon Balm is sprouting up here and there in the mint garden. I even clipped a few leaves last week to add to our fresh fruit salad.
Our chive plant that grows in our front walkway is sending up new sprouts too!
I know that I have not posted in awhile, hopefully I will get around to posting some holiday photos soon…until then, take care!
