The Garden in January

Earlier in the month, the garden was covered with lots of snow and it was about 18 degrees (Jan 10, 2011)

And then 11 days later, the garden is uncovered and in the 40 degree sunshine. (Jan 21, 2011) I even picked two radishes that day.

Last week we had our garden meeting to start planning for March, which includes cleaning the beds and planning some events for March and April. Think spring!

Welcome 2011!

A year ago the SLCC Community Garden did not even exist, and now I have been blogging about it for six months!

No pictures today.....some updates and some goals.

The basil bush did not like my kitchen. Its leaves gave me a few more leaves for dishes these past two months, but it is no longer in the kitchen :(.

The tomatoes are all gone also. So I am eating the last of 2010's harvest in my pesto I took out of the freezer.

1. I hope to create/plant more in the herb garden area.
2. I will plant one new vegetable this year.
3. I want to experience canning. I have never done it. I heard it is hard, but I like to try things at least once.

Only three more months until I can smell the earth and see things sprouting up from the earth!
