There Will Be No Winter Gardening For Me

Posted on Jan 6 2010 - 5:59am by Mike Lieberman

My winter container gardening has already ended on my fire escape. It’s also ended for my backyard vegetable garden in Brooklyn as well.

This can be attributed to a few things. The first being my neglect. I didn’t go to my Grandmother’s for two weeks to tend to the plants. I’m sure that the snow and cold weather also contributed to the plants dying.

Now that they are dead, I’ll have to look back on how the vegetable performed, what my mistakes were and how I can improve for the 2010 season.

The next step is to empty out the containers and started a top-secret composting operation at my Grandmother’s.

I have big plans for her backyard in 2010. Anything that you think I should do or would like me to experiment with?
