Weekend snapshot is a new blogger photo activity. Every Monday participants will post a photograph which speaks in some way to the weekend. You can go here to find out more. I am posting early because I'm not sure how tomorrow will shape up for me, what with work and other things that rear their heads on Monday mornings. Also, except for the first time, I have been posting my Saturday photohunt shots on Friday, so why not post my weekend snapshot on Sunday instead of Monday. Saturday mornings at the garden center are particularly fun this time of year since there aren't as many weekend gardeners there after July.The photographs below were taken after I returned home. I'm getting psyched about my fall/winter garden.I haven't had a winter garden in two years because I let myself get, well, lazy. No excuse since I'm well set up for year round gardening.
So this year, I'm turning over an old leaf to grow some new edible leaves for fall and winter salads. On Monday, you can go here to find other weekend snapshot participants. Note - this is the first week for WS so I'm not sure what others will be doing with it. I'm probably going to use it as a way to post photographs which illustrate my weekend but I'll also be talking about whatever is on my mind.
The shot below isn't a weekend shot and I think I've posted it on my blog before. I am so tired of the heat I thought I'd remind myself of one of my best winter gardening years. Believe it or not the boxes below were filled with healthy lettuce and other greens which survived quite nicely for at least half of one of our colder winters.
