and it looks like we are ready for Christmas :)
but, we’re not :) These lights are just what we need to keep our Lemon & Lime trees happy through the winter…
good old fashioned 7w Christmas lights! Right now we only have enough for the lime, I’ll be searching for more..
In the meantime, they are all covered with frost cloth; a trouble light & heating mat will keep the other 2 warm should the temps. dip below 3C
The winter veggies need winter protection too….
Garlic has really grown since we planted them in Oct. I’ve never seen them grow this fast! Is that good? Bad?
They have all been tucked in for winter with lots of straw! Except the Brussel sprouts…
I’ll add a leaf mulch to them, mixed with grass clippings for a little nutrition…
Carrots will be left in pots till we need them, and
the celery is going to be left in the garden!
just a little longer ;)
