In the Garden!

Its a good time to plant winter vegetables such as broad beans. peas and turnips.
They like a slightly alkaline soil so add some dolomite when you are preparing the bed.
It's time to plant spinach.
Now that midwinter has delivered a little rain and a lot of cold and short days. I often return to the late when aching bones demand rest by a warm hearth.
Then,a drift into the cheerful musings of a generous observer is a beautiful thing.
In order not to create a specimen garden.restraint is reading at advice to English gardeners.
I was enjoy all my friends has a beautiful flowers in there gardens.
and Tomato's everyday so far too.

Sis, what a lovely blog and what a delicious thing to read about. Tomatoes, spinach, broadbeans..YUMMY! I love vegetables and you know about my big tomato plant and the new first tomato I picked and now have eaten all up.

It is YOUR turn to get Gypsy to drive on over here and pick up Katie and me to take us to Melborne. We will be waiting here outside. We decided that we can stay the weekend with you.

Dearest Michiko,

Fun to read your whereabouts. Planning such a winter garden is a great thing to do. And you better keep warm and toasty during the cool evenings. But you're going into spring time as fast as we go into fall weather. Time is passing very fast!
Lots of love to you and thanks again for your loyal commenting! It means the world to me, coming from such a special friend like you.

Dearest Michiko-san,
わぁ~~~♪♪♪ 自家製のお野菜、美味しそうで楽しみですね♡♡♡ 外での庭仕事は、疲れる時もあると思いますが 収穫は何とも言えませんよね!!!
私の元あった庭は、主人の趣味部屋に取って代わってしまいました (^^;)

Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
