2016 Winter Planting

Living in this temperate climate in Temecula, at the northern border of San Diego County, the weather variances are mild at best, although we do get a very small period of chill time.  This past winter, I've been holed up in the house entertaining guests during the holidays, as well as sewing, quilting and baking bread.  I thought I might have lost all interest in digging dirt, but my little garden beckons and with Spring in mind, I had to visit the nursery to buy those things that I grow every year about this time, here at the Casita:

  1. Walla walla onion sets
  2. Winterbor curly-leaf kale
  3. Cheerful violas and delicate poppies
  4. Bulbs that are already sprouted (daffodil and hyacinth)
  5. Flat-leaf parsley, cilantro and German thyme
The onions and kale are planted, and the rest will go in this week.  As for the rest of the garden, my ultra-dwarf apple and peach trees, now in their second or third season, are pruned and now waiting for the miracle of spring.
