Vegetable Gardening Hints, Issue #051

Happy Holidays.

In the northern hemisphere December is the month where you can let your garden and yourself rest, guilt free! Enjoy the time with family and friends.

Where I live on the southwest coast of British Columbia, Canada we are getting lots of rain and cold weather. Even though we have mostly gray skies there are still a few things in the garden - some kale, Swiss chard, and some carrots where the soil is not too wet. Oh and there is still a cabbage or two as well.

For those of you who are still growing a winter vegetable gardening here are some ideas to help to get the most out of your garden.

Northern gardens are covered with snow and everything has been harvested and is either in a root cellar, canned or frozen. All great ways to keep eating your own fresh veggies and fruits all winter long.

If you want to take the time to do a little research for next season I have some great information at vegetable gardening tips

If you are living in a more southern or tropical climate you are most likely enjoying fresh fruits and some veggies, as well as enjoying sunshine and warmth, which I am feeling envious of right now. For some advice on what to grow now in your garden.
