I went to examine the blooms on my Camellia the other day and was amazed to find a bee in every one. Then there was a sulfur butterfly in my Pansies. I'll never get used to the changes in climate here. We'll have 26 degrees tonight and then four days next week expect temps upward of 70. The self-contained boxes are producing. We've had Collards and now the Broccoli is heading. We're like proud parents and plan to expand to many more b oxes next spring. There are also some greens left in the ground. Little by little we're learning what will grow here and it's fun!

Oh, that sounds like a lot of fun, never knowing what to expect! Your greens are looking great by the way.
Thanks, Droopy. It is a lot of fun and keeps some interest in the garden in winter.
I'm having withdrawal symptoms here seeing your greens and hearing about your bees and butterflies. Never mind in a few months time I'll be able to see everything sprouting and I'll listen to the buzzing of bees too. Isn't gardening wonderful!!
What a matrvelous posting, Gardengater. I am very enthusiastic for you (and with you). The calabrese head looks grand and I can see that the other greens are looking very well indeed. You must be tremandously proud...well done, you!
Say,Gg--are those pine needles I see there in the pen where the greens and so forth are?
Yes Sjoerd, I haven't been doing my housekeeping lately. The trees are right in back of the garden.
What part of NC are you in? Love your blog & pics. .
We're on the coast, Songof Joy57. We love it here, but also love to visit the mountains. Thank you for letting me know that you enjoyed the photos. We live in a beautiful state, don't we? Post some of your area. I 'd love to see it.
Boy...I wish I had a load of those pine needles for my blueberries and strawberries.
Wish I could send the lot to you, Sjoerd. These are short-needle Australian pine needles and they're everywhere. I would use them for mulch, but I've been told they would attract bugs.
