The Winter Garden has been planted

I have been a busy beaver here with not much time to post.

Today, I completed putting in the 2008-09 winter garden. Well.. maybe not everything ... the strawberry plants have not arrived ... but everything else, which I am starting from seed, has been planted: Carrots, Basil, Parsley, Assorted Lettuce, Kohlrabi, Golden Beets, Pak Choi, Peas, and Purple-top Turnips.

In about 3 to 4 weeks, I will be planting Potatoes and Shallots. The only thing I am growing this year in a pot are tomatoes, which have not come up enough for me to transplant.

The picture above shows my new raised beds. From the left: Strawberry & Cape Gooseberry Pryamid, Potato & Shallot bin, Lettuce & Herb round, 3x6 foot raised bed.
