Winter Gardening

January 6, 2019

While the calendar may say winter, the weather felt more like spring. It was the second day of warm spring-like temperatures.  I had some time to spend time in the garden. I fertilized my winter vegetables–the garlic and shallots are growing well.garlic and shallots.jan6.19  I also have some nice heads forming on my broccoli and the curly kale looks great as well.  broccoli jan6.19kale and broccoli.jan19kale jan6.19

Winter vegetables are not the only plants looking good.  The camellias have never looked better than they do this year. camellias.jan6.1913camellias.jan6.1915camellias.jan6.1912 Bees were hovering around the plants and I also saw a plant bug camellias.jan6.1914that was active today.

My hellebores are also blooming well and they also had bees flying around. hellebores.jan6.191hellebores.jan6.192

The mahonia is about to be in bloom too.  mahonia.jan6.1912

It was a great day outside, but who knows what the rest of our winter will be like.

I had to quit gardening to go to book club.  A Gentleman in Moscow was our book and it was well-liked by the group.  There was a lot to discuss as well.  Very well-written.a gentleman in moscow.
