A Potager is a french kitchen garden, combining nourishing vegetables with the beauty of flowers and well thought out settings. This blog is about my garden and the things that add beauty to my life.

The first day of March has blown in with snow and freezing rain - this has been a hard winter. The potager sits with it's snowy blanket waiting for spring. Is it really only 19 days away?
Inside my trays of leeks and onions have grown large enough that I had to remove their plastic "greenhouse" covers. (I've kept them on jars in front of the seeds to keep the cats from bothering the seeds during their daily bird watching.)
The windowsill is drafty, facing south-east and there are no grow lights, but I have had better germination that I have had in years. I can't explain it. As always, gardening amazes me.
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
