The winter vegetable garden is ready

For the last couple of weeks I been working on my winter vegetable garden.  This year I’m sawing seeds and I purchased seedlings from my favorite organic herb farm in Homestead.
 
In this bed I planted white onions, (from home depot) purple kohlrabi and mix greens. 
 
In the middle bed I planted red bell peppers, Swiss chard and I’m sowing spinach (nothing yet).  By the wall I planted cucumbers.

These are broccoli seedlings; the plant in the center is purple basil.  The container in front has mix greens.
 
This year I’m planting all my tomatoes in containers and the cherry tomatoes in hanging baskets. Let see if I have better luck. 

The weather has changed the cooler nights are perfect for growing vegetables; the only negative is that the dry season is here.  It stopped raining two weeks ago and my rain barrels are almost empty.

It is interesting to watch your winter garden as we are opposite seasons, and heading into our wet season (summer) at the moment.
