Winter holidays and waiting for spring on the balcony garden

I wish you all a happy holiday and a happy new year.

The blog will be on a low burn until early spring as I decided not to any winter gardening this season. But I will be back in early spring with soil, seedlings, garden planning, recipes and all those good things.

When I look at my balcony garden right now I see empty containers stacked at one end. All they contain is soil and the promise of next year. I am already thinking abut what I want to do next year and sometime in February/March the balcony garden will slowly start to take form inside with the planting of seeds and watching seedlings grow.

There will be some changes next year based on the successes and failures of this season. Because of my limited space I have to be tough when it comes to what to grow. Next season will be about trying new sorts and a whole lot of tomatoes. Tomatoes are my favorite crop and I have already gotten a whole batch of new sorts with beef, cherries and tomatoes in all colors. The most difficult thing will be choosing what to grow. I participated in a huge seedswap through the garden club; The Vertical Veg club and I am so exited to try some of the seeds I swapped for. Check out http://www.verticalveg.org.uk/ if you want to be part of the club or just want inspiration on urban gardening.

I leave you with proof of the warmest year in history here in Denmark which means flowering forest strawberries in December.
