Garden Update: December 2013

We've reached the end of the year. Over here in Indiana, it is constantly cold and grey. Our patio garden is stripped clean, and I suspect the plants in the garage are in hibernation mode. But we've had such a great gardening season and we're not ready to give it all up.

So ...

Zach brought in some herbs and placed them by the window!

We have 2 kinds of oregano (he's deemed this the most important herb to have!), 2 kinds of thyme, 2 pots of sweet basil, marjoram, rosemary, and some Italian flat-leaf parsley.

For Christmas, we received 2 little greenhouses from Zach's mom. We haven't fixed it up yet, but we're looking forward to getting our plants started a little earlier next year! In the meantime, we're using a mushroom kit to (hopefully) grow some mushrooms. We'll see how that goes ...

I admire your carrots. We've never had much luck with them in our little kitchen garden. Maybe we should try containers.

Hi Jack, we harvested bigger and better carrots in the fall than in spring. We learned that carrots are actually pretty heavy feeders so maybe fertilizing will help with yours? Good luck!
