My Gardens in December 2015

December was warm considering it was supposed to be winter. We still hadn’t had a really big killing frost.

The Kitchen Garden in December 2015

Sparse, but still a few things were growing in the kitchen garden in December, due to the warm weather. I have never had as much growing this late in the season before.

 Arugula, Rainbow Chard, and Leeks.

Kale ‘Redbor.’

Rainbow Chard and Dill.


More Parsley, Sorrel, and Garlic Chives.

Garlic Chives and Sorrel.

The Flower Garden in December 2015

Foggy mornings were somewhat common in the garden in the warmth of December.

It was warm enough for a yellow rose or two to still be blooming!

And daffodils thought it was already spring.

There was even mint still growing outside the back door – enough to make a couple mojitos.

Also outside the back door, Oregano, Thyme, and Sage, were still green – barely touched by frost at all.

But no mistake, it WAS December.

The Christmas Ferns had their fine greenery for Christmas, hence the name.

Winnie watched over the garden, as always.

I put the leftover pumpkins from Halloween and Easter out in the garden for the squirrels to munch on. Usually they devour them, but this time they really weren’t interested.

The neighbor’s cats continued to take advantage of the warmer weather.

As did my cats!
