Springfield Area Herb Society will be having a "Plant & Seed Swap" at their monthly meeting in February (3rd Tues of the month @ 6 pm)

I would also like to know if a seed swap is in the future plans for 1,000 gardens project.

Aubree, are you going to organize a winter seed swap this year? I'm sure there are many like me that have to much seed and are looking for something different. It was a lot of fun last year

Like Bill, my winter garden has garlic going: 4 kinds of garlic and also two kinds of shallots, all planted last month and already poking up. They'll winter over and then be ready in early summer. Also a raised herb bed under a low tunnel, and another low tunnel bed with lettuce, Indian mustard and Japanese Red mustard. Chard is still going strong, and I will probably transfer a few plants into the hoop house, along with some additional potted herbs.

For our winter garden: We have greens, radishes and herbs in the hoop house, herbs in a coldframe and a raised bed we hope to cover that has loads of lettuce..kale..mizuna and arugula.

Are there any winter gardens out there. We have two cold frames of lettuce and spinach  that will provide greens all winter.  We also have Jersuem artichokes that will be harvested throughout the winter and garlic is growing all winter to be pulled in the late spring. What do others have going this winter?

Inspiration even if you have a small space.

Thanks for the info Nikki but I am wondering about the olive tree when we were in Crete they were so beautiful
Comment by Nikki Petitt on May 18, 2010 at 9:29pm
I believe winter temps are too cold for you to grow an olive tree - did read an article recentlyabout a small planting of olive trees that were producing in Oregon though. Red Ridge Farms in the Willamette Valley,Oregon. Cistus Nursery was mentioned as 'mentor' to the grower, but all the cultivars they list are only hardy to zone 8. If you're referring to the tree known as a Russian Olive (Elaeagnus) then you may have better luck. Hard to find at local nurseries, but they have been known to do fairly well in this area.
