Its gotten to be the time of year when I’d rather not go out to the garden. Too cold. With temperatures in the 20s and snow predicted for the coming weekend, today I picked the last of my escarole. Its been a good crop.
Since I’m not gardening, it must be time for planning next year’s garden. I’ve been looking forward to this. First I’ll put together a list of what I grew this year – what did well and what did not. I need to decide what crops I want to grow again and what I want to give up on. Then I’ll draw out where I’ll plant what next year – diagrams of BOTH of my gardens. I’ll guess that I’ll have a new SUNNY plot that will be 15 x 20 ft. I usually try to wait until Jan 1 to start planning, but why wait? I think I’ll start planning on Nov 30 this year. That’s exciting!
