We have interesting growing conditions here in Dallas Texas. I say this because one day it was 80 degrees F and the next night it was 25 degrees F! That is quite a shift to make, am I right?! I have to say hats off to you Northerners, I don’t know how you do it! I am a hot weather kind of gal. However, I am thinking that there is usually a g-r-a-d-u-a-l build up to Winter in most places. Not a Summer/switch gears, surprise it’s Winter, kind of situation! Well, here it is exactly that!
Again, not complaining. As I knocked the ice out of the rabbit’s water crocks, I thought, “I am soooo glad I don’t have to do this everyday!” If you are a southern gardener, then you know ;that this freeze means it is game over for food production…..or maybe not? What about a Winter garden?
Here at Bloom Where You’re Planted we garden all year. I say, “Jack Frost, bring it!” Nothing is going to stop me from feeding my family ALL YEAR! Although when you have Jesus Christ walking with you, well, let’s just say you have quite an advantage! After all, Jack Frost is a mythical weather guy, while Jesus Christ is a real, rose from the dead, let’s walk on water kind of guy!
We made a video of exactly how we do this Winter growing. You will see that our kale and spinach didn’t germinate well this year and our beets are itty bity! What can I say, it was a very warm Fall!
Enjoy the video and see how we stumble through another year of Winter gardening. I say stumble, but last year I had more kale and spinach then I knew what to do with! Each year we have different challenges and trials, but we keep the hope and maybe find ourselves stronger at the end of the hard times!
