So now that winter is upon us; it’s time to bring all your precious herbs inside. Some of them will survive, but not all.
A member of my staff/master gardener, Karen Wiegert, is always giving me helpful tips for my garden.
Pansies: Pick the pansy “hips” once the petals have dropped and dry them. I put them in a zip lock bag and leave it open until they dry completely. Then I shake the bag and the seeds fall out. I will then put the seeds their husks and leave them until next year.
It looks a little bleak outside at the moment, but there is still wonderful things happening in my garden!
The leeks are still growing, so I would suggest pulling them out and re-planting them in the back in the ground. This stops the growing process and preserves them for you for the winter. There are still beets, globe artichokes, fingerling potatoes, Indian carrots along with the acorn and spaghetti squash.
