Different Season, Different Place

I took some pictures of parts of the gardening area yesterday from up in Papa Pea's second floor office.

Panning left to right:




Much of the garden is over-blown now and looking a little the worse for wear.  Some of it has already been pulled out.

Then I dug into my picture files and found these.



During the different times of the year, it's like living in a totally different world.  And, I guess, it actually is.

Oh boy, I don't look forward to everything under 6 feet of snow! My biggest goal starting in January through to April will be to only leave the driveway (in the car) once a month. I hope I can pull it off! Though a white Christmas is always so cozy isn't it? :)

Rain - I know you're more a summer/heat lover than I am! I really like winter for a lot of reasons. BUT I must admit driving on icy roads is NOT one of them!

Mama Pea said...

Aw, thank you so much, Sue. The main reason I love the garden covered in snow is that it's my time of year to spend more time doing handwork. Something that is nearly forgotten in the summer when I'm outside so much of the day!

Your gardens are gorgeous! I have to say I love the snow pictures more! I love my garden but I think I love snow more!!!!

Every time I see your raised beds, I think, "Why haven't you started the process for raised beds?" I know I should be killing some grass already if I want raised beds for next spring. I also need husband to help build them. I just love your garden. -Jenn

I love those comparison photos. They really help you appreciate the garden in the highlights of it's growing season. And I'm always impressed with how neat your garden looks. Mine should take lessons!

Kristina said...

Oh boy! We have had some extremes, but that is really extreme.

Ah yes, some of my garden has been pulled already. This wretched constant heat and humidity is wearing on the gardens and my soul. I love winter but have a hard time with it in January. That's my "low" month.

Your gardens look wonderful no matter the season.

Mama Pea said...

Hi, Val! I kinda have to agree with you! And this year, I'm already looking forward to winter with it's different activities . . . and feeling of time slowing down!

Mama Pea said...

Awww, Jen, what nice words! Even though I'd never give up my raised beds for some things (a total use of space!), I still need my field garden for other veggies. The soil to fill raised beds initially is, I think, the hardest part. Our beds are nothing more than a rectangular box made of 2" thick lumber.

Mama Pea said...

Leigh - Yes, there is such a huge difference in our seasons up here. Thanks for the kind words, but neatness or otherwise of a garden doesn't matter if it produces healthy food for the gardeners!

Mama Pea said...

MrsDM - Please send me your slow/low time in January! I NEVER tire of the time winter gives me to do "inside" things. Then there's the invigorating outside fun things, too, like skiing or snowshoeing. And, oh yes, shoveling and plowing snow!

Mama Pea said...

Kristina - Yep, we really do have four distinct seasons up here. Well, except for spring. We don't usually get what others would call spring as we go from still cold to summer time. I really miss the spring flowers we don't seem to be able to have as we did way back when we were living in Illinois.

Mama Pea said...

Glenda - What a nice thing to say! Now, really, don't you wish you got as much snow in winter as we do?? ;o}

Rain said...

I'll attest to that from last March! We're saving for studded winter tires for this season, that should give a little more peace of mind!

Mama Pea said...

Rain - Yep, it's oh-so-wise to be as safe as you possibly can when out on winter time roads!

Our forecast this coming weekend is for "fall-like weather". I would be thrilled were it not for the hundreds of green tomatoes, languishing on the vine.

That's my "low" month.
