We don’t like to go out in the cold, so we abandoned our garden for the winter. This month has gifted us with a couple warm days so we checked up on our garden. Our garden has done surprisingly well!
The compost we started a year and a half ago actually looks like compost! The things that decomposed really well were vegetable discards, fruit discards, leaves, and organic bowls. But you can easily tell the things that didn’t do so well: egg shells, yarn, and spoons. It doesn’t smell at all any more…but the question is if we want to withstand the gnats and stink again for more.
Our green onions seem to be hanging in there all through winter. During the winter, we were sad to see that our garlic was all dead, but it looks like they’ve made a re-emergence for the spring! Yum! I love garlic!!
I can’t wait for it to get warmer…because that means we’ll be able to plant some basil. And you know what that means…PESTO!!!!!
