Oak Hill Cottage Garden
My Fall Gardening on Oak Hill
I took a week off working in the cottage garden, and I basically came back to a new season. It's time to start thinking about fall gardening! This is what my garden looks like in mid-September.
Columnar Trees for the Cottage Garden

Growing vegetables in winter are generally called winter-sowing. I decided to winter-sow fast-growing leafy greens in my cottage garden. Trust me, it works!
