Potager Y @ Japan, what’s growing in December 2020

The year 2020 marks the 13th year of my ‘Potager Y @ Japan’ gardening hobby.

Each year, I plant and harvest about 50 types of vegetables and herbs.

It has been a very educational yet fulfilling, exciting and beneficial time spent, albeit spiced with some occasional failures.

At this time of the year, where I live, temperature dips down to about 5 degrees and rises up to about 13 or 14 degrees. Pleasant… even lovely and comfortable, I would say.

In the weekends, I tend the plots where winter vegetables (carrots, greens, fava beans, radish, beets, celery, lettuce, etc.) are growing, and harvest the remaining goodies from summer crops (tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins, etc.) as they ripen.

I touch and smell the flowers (Raja Ulam, zinnia, marigold) from summer and watch the honey bees collect pollen to bring back to the bee hive placed at the edge of the Potager.

Anyway, here are some of the plants that are thriving in Potager Y at the moment.
