As the lettuce continues to mature, the spinach offers yet another harvest, and the broccoli is producing side shoots like crazy, I know the winter garden is almost done. I still have a few rows of carrots going, and hopefully I can harvest them in another month or so, but I’ve already started switching beds over to the summer garden. I say summer because Spring lasts all of four weeks here it seems. I have transplanted zucchini, squash, cucumbers, green beans, and have sowed another round of green beans as well as sunflowers. My peppers are doing pretty good – I’ve actually had them outside now for the past week, but they are still portable. I won’t put them into the ground until later this month. I have to harvest some more lettuce first. In total, I have four orange bell pepper plants, two jalapeno plants and four cayenne pepper plants. The pics are small, but you can view them full-size by clicking.
A garden is the best alternative therapy.

the crucible of life,
