Happy Thanksgiving to All of Our Aspiring Gardeners!
Hello, and welcome back to another week with the Aspiring Gardener! We apologize for the delay, but are ready to get back into the swing of things. Fall is in full swing, with winter right around the corner, and with it, a number of leafy green delights in your garden. Greens such as Kale, Spinach, Chard, Bok Choy, and Arugala are all capable of being planted in the winter, allowing for multiple harvests so you can enjoy fresh greens all winter. Swiss chard also happens to be a beautiful plant, as is blue dazzling kale, with its large, blue-green leaves. Plants from the brassica family, which contains cabbages and mustards, can also be planted in the winter months. All together, they create a veritable feast of greens to enjoy over the winter. On the less edible side of gardening, now is a wonderful time to start planting your bulbs. So long as there isn’t a hard frost that lasts more than a day or two, they’ll be fine to plant now and will produce lovely flowers and plants in later months. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and as always, happy planting!
