Winter vegetable garden is in.

My winter vegetable garden is planted and already producing.  This year I’m emphasizing mix salad greens and herbs, previous experience taught me that mix greens do better in a low sun area. Located in a strip of land between my house and my neighbor, the location of my vegetable garden is not ideal but it is the only place I have available.  During the winter season when the sun is low in the southern sky, this area of the garden gets only a couple of hours of sun in the early morning. 
This year I planted, tomatoes, radicchio, broccoli, eggplant, Swiss chard, spinach, peppers, cucumbers, mesclun mix and romaine lettuce.  So far a few of these plants are doing well, others not so (the tomatoes as always are starting poorly)
This year we had an unusually wet early winter, I’m hoping that as the dry season takes over and the only water the garden gets comes from my watering can things will get better.

Your garden looks pretty. And more than that, it’s actually producing a fresh mix of salad greens and herbs you would later include in your dishes. It’s really practical to grow your own vegetable garden; not only it will add to the curb appeal of your backyard, it would also help you have a healthy diet. Too bad not everyone has a green thumb like yours. Have a nice day!
