charts 2006

it's winter. there's plenty of snow in glen wild and noreasters passing thru.
it's time to stay inside by the stove.
now there's time to reflect on the garden in the last few years. here are all the charts for the seedlings we started in 2006, which plants were started inside, and which we put directly in the ground. next post will show the same charts for 2007.

kitchen gardens

finally, finally i'm posting these examples of semi-urban kitchen gardens in Umbertide, Italy. they are very impressive mostly in that every apartment building and house has at least a small plot of lettuce and rucula growning. in fact my friend Diego said that it is totally unheard of to buy greens in the market, because everyone grows there own.
