Winter Success

These are the vegetables and herbs that have done very well in our Kuwaiti winter.
Plants like Swiss chard, kale, and rocket in my garden are 7 months old and are still producing beautifully.

This is a nice long season, so when planning next year’s winter garden, be sure to have these in mind.

I’ll be sure to plant most of these again next September.

As these delicate greens start to wilt under the returning sun, I will start working on my spring garden which starts from March until June, or whenever it gets scorching hot.

The summer is the golden season for composting, so make sure you collect those garden and kitchen scraps to make rich compost for next season!
