darkraptor's garden

Recommended Posts

This will hold pictures, thoughs and experiences on my garden.

When i've designed my garden a part of it was specifically dedicated to cultivate vegetables, aromatic herbs and fruits.

This year's winter have been a bit harsh so seeding and planting have been a little delayed, still i will post pictures to allow all interested to follow the garden progress.

A assorted set of seeds have been sowed into rich soil.
Protection from frost was needed because of this year's heather.

Also the soil have been prepared... and yes..you spotted correctly.. There will be TOMATO! :D

Even with this year's low temperatures ( 4-14 ºC ) with the help of the protection the seed's have sprouted

Looking good darkraptor :)

Feel free to not answer this question. I just want to get a sense for your seasons and climate. Whereabouts are you located?

Great Darkraptor looks like at my garden, or I hope it looks like because my wife had to take care of it. I will see when I´m back home in 2 days.

 

Enjoy the fruits of your work.
