Here at Patina Farm, the weekend started with some much needed rain!
On Sunday morning we woke to crisp blue skies over the new potager.
Hopefully the rain will jumpstart the growth of the lavender along the circular paths.
Inside the potager, the rain washed the dust off of the new Hanley Gold gravel .
My poor little citrus trees are in shock from the cold spell we had a few weeks ago. I am hopeful that they will recover this Spring.
I've filled my raised beds with Winter lettuce, beets, brussels sprouts, snap peas, and carrots.
Someone was nibbling on the beet greens, so we decided to cover some of the beds with these willow pyramids.
If you like the pyramids, you can purchase them on the Terrain website.
My potager sits below the house. We situated it so that we can view it from all of the rooms in the back of the house.
The trellis is on axis with the little garden shed. The iron will eventually be covered in white roses.
Before all of the foliage was removed from the rose vines, the donkeys and goats enjoyed this area more than anyone else!
Won't you come into the green house? I've placed some olive topiaries, basil and some vintage garden cloches at the end as a pretty focal point.
The light inside the greenhouse makes everything glow.
I've never had a greenhouse before, so I'm conducting quite a few experiments. I'm growing onions from seed...
and carrots too...
I found these wonderful vintage crates for harvest time.
It's a great place to watch the donkeys graze... but where are the goats?
Apparently the goats are getting into some mischief!
I think it's time to get off the table!
The swing is a much better toy!
Little Louise enjoys a good swing...
and a good neck rub! Oh Louise!
I hope you enjoyed your time with us in the garden! Thank you to Ricardo Gutierrez and his fantastic crew for helping us create our new garden!
