Goodnight Garden

Well it's getting cold so it's time for the garden to go to bed. I brought the green onions, basil, oregano, sage and lemon balm in to winter on the kitchen windowsill, or more accurately the table in front of the kitchen window. The remnants of everything else went into the compost bin and the dirt from the pots back into the dirt container. I'll be so glad when we have our own planting place and don't have to use pots and containers anymore.
I left two window boxes out and planted garlic in those. Garlic loves the cold, so they should be ready in spring. I did this last year too and we had a lot of little heads of garlic, maybe by using two pots and spacing them out a bit this year we'll get bigger heads.
