December First is Here!

      Wow, where does the time go.  Can't believe we are into December already.  It hit me today that I ought to photo document my gardens on the 1st and 15th of every month so that I can check on the progress, and in the future can compare the gardens in different years.  So here goes, the gardens as of December first.

Back yard Trex cold frame, 12/1/11

      Next, over to the park.  The next four photos are general shots of the garden and cold frames.  There are nine beds in the park garden, ranging about two through four feet wide.  Bed number 9 is northern most, bed number 1 is southern most.  The beds don't face due south, but close enough that I didn't bother to change their orientation.  In the picture below, the shorter cold frame at the top is in bed 7, and the longer cold frame in bed 6.

      Phew, for the first of December, a lot still going on.  I am surprised that a lot of things are still growing, not just hibernating.  I was under the impression that growth stopped about the middle of November.  Shows the need for some photo documentation.
