Spring is my favorite season. I'm actually a little depressed today because we're having our first snow of the year.

Thank you Whisk and Chopper

It is quite cute I agree...it was all we had space for really as the rest of our garden is jam packed with trees, plants, shrubs etc

I will certainly keep the photos up to date of how things are growing

Kylie--throw in some Italian parsley. Like LP, I bring my herbs in for the winter. I plant Swiss Chard, Kale, and pepper plants among my perenials in my flower garden as well. And, if you can get perennial Greek Oregano, it has lovely purple flowers and will come back year after year (in the perennial flower bed).

That planter looks like a waterer used for horses and cattle. Lovely. I'll be so jealous all winter (here) as we hear about the lovely dishes you'll be making with the things harvested from the garden.

Radishes are great between plants--they only take 21-30 days and you can re-seed several times during the growing season.

I missed the Ital. Parsley in your original post. You can put onions between your plants too (if you get some onion bulbs, you can plant them very close together and pull them as you need as "spring" onions). You could plant peas and eat the pea greens...and, you can eat the radish greens before they get fuzzy.
