Gardening is addictive. Last spring, this retired couple started out with a single raised bed. They harvested squash, tomatoes, peppers, and green beans.
The bed was planted for the fall with collards, kale, carrots, turnips, and radishes.
The North Florida raised bed now has a neighbor.
See? Once you get started gardening, it’s hard to stop with just one bed.
The gardener used my cheap DIY plant label idea, and planted another garden.
The raised bed idea is great for planting carrots, who need soft soil in order to grow straight roots.
We have gotten some frosts recently here in North Florida, but they have a neat way to cover their beds for the night. I’ll have to show you some pictures of that soon.
I hope your gardens are growing well. You can start planning for the spring and getting your seeds together. I have a post on how to get free seeds and how to make your own compost. Gardening can be as expensive or as inexpensive as you want.
Winter is a time for yummy greens (especially in my favorite kale recipe!) and fresh hot biscuits. I have a super easy way to make biscuits that I will share with you later this week.
Fresh, hot, homemade biscuits with some easy peach jam? Yes, please!!!
