Looking Back

February - blog still at 400px wide, garden under snow

March - seeds germinating under covers

April - seeds sprouted and growing, hardening off seedlings

May - everything planted

June -was cold but things started growing

July - the height of the jungle

August - peas and potatoes harvested

September - tomatoes gone, fall veggies reign

October - only cold weather crops left

December - dreaming of next year

Happy New Year Everyone!


  1. I love looking back at pictures. I'm going to try to remember to take monthly pictures, myself, next year.

  2. Wonderful post! Happy Harvests for 2010! Carol

  3. Nice monthly photos! I once did that years ago, should do it again...happy new year to you and wishing you a successful garden in 2010.

  4. A perfect photo suite! It is lovely to see the different variations of your kitchen garden, I'm so glad that I live in a country with seasonal changes.
    I wish you a great evening and a Happy New Year.

  5. Great review !
    Happy New Year and all the best for 2010 ! A sense a great gardening season to come.

  6. Happy New Year to you as well, great post! I love watching the transition of your garden.

  7. Happy New Year Daphne!

    P.S. The word verification is 'bleste', which seems a most appropriate word for you and your garden!

  8. Happy New Year, Daphne! Here's to 2010's garden being as, or more, successful as 2009's garden. I'll pray for your tomatoes to be blight free if you'll pray for my jalapenos to be hot ;-)

  9. Thanks for the overview and the inspiration! I'm going to try to do a "first of the month" photo each month this year. Maybe I'll make myself a calendar!

    It's so nice to see your garden all tucked under snow.

  10. I love yearly overview photos! Amazing the growth plants put on and the harvest in such a short period of time.

    I dug up two other paste tomato varieties, green sausage & speckled romain that I have had for a few seasons. I am also going to order Martinos Roma as well. Not sure if you are still looking for more paste tomatoes?

  11. How cool was that??? I love the garden under snow photo at the end. I think that's one of the great things about living somewhere with real seasons - you get to experience a real change in your garden. Great recap!!


  12. I love looking at everyone's year-in-review. It's like looking at a time-lapse film. I'm still amazed by how much you're able to grow inside your garden plot.

    This year should be an interesting one for you Daphne. Hopefully your new home will have a large yard for you to cultivate in!

  13. Bravo! Great "time lapse" pictures showing the progression of the seasons and the garden. I just adore th garden in June and July.... so much happening but it still feels fresh and full of promise.

  14. what a beautiful photographic record of your garden through the season. I'm jealous that you have such an overarching viewpoint to shoot from. Your row covers are very inspiring.
