What do I blog about in Winter?

It's not hard in the Summer to find things to blog about.But what to blog about in Winter when nothing is happening. My favourite trug? One hundred and one things to do with a wheelbarrow? a watering can? Does anyone have any ideas?

I think that I am going to have to apologize to my garden for not winterizing it enough. That should take a few blog posts....

So little time and so much to blog about in summer and so much time and nothing to say in winter...
this is true!
... and there are very few garden blogs to read in winter.

This isn't a rhetorical question to which an answer isn't desired, is it?

What are other bloggers writing about? Houseplants? Holiday decors? Wildlife? Nearby botanical sites with a greenhouse? The neighborhood. Evergreens. Past failures, future hopes. Favorite tools. How-tos. Lists, I love lists.

Your trug with the bears is just precious.

Yes it is more of a challenge but you could use your blog to plan for the spring, what you are going to plant, etc

I just blogged about - well - nothing ;-)

But there are still some garden topics left on my todo list: christmas trees, horseradish, lamb's lettuce ...

Matron,
The garden still had nature in it. You could put in a bird feeder perhaps and talk about it. We plant snow peas the end of January here, they can take the cold and they also beat the summer heat.

I have been facing the same challenge. I have been doing a blog series discussing techniques for optimizing production out of the garden. Kicked it off right after Thanksgiving and it will wrap up just after Christmas. Been posting those mid week and then doing a weekend blog update on what is happening in the garden (winter harvests, winter freezes, greenhouse containers, etc.). I am planning to tackle a garden related shop project in about a week as well, and expect that will be good fodder for the blog as well. Then before I know it, I will be in seed starting mode once again.

Just don't STOP!!! I'm sure you can find lots to blog about (even if it's only about that pesky lady in West Oz)

I can usually find some rubbish to waffle about. Doesn't have to be good, remember: any old crap will do. Just keep us stringing along until the season starts again...

For one thing you must surely have your review of the highs and lows of 2009.

Then there's your New Year Resolutions. ;)

I just continue to waffle on regardless og the season. Write a liitle more about yourself maybe?? Memories of the year, memories of childhood winters...I think this is a time of reflection and hopes for the next year. Whatever you write we'll still visit!

I love the trug with the bears. One looks like Paddington without his coat.
I'm searching too. Lots of posts on birds lately.

If you have any favorite winter recipes that you make from produce you've saved from your garden that would be a great post.

Hi Matron,
I will be focusing on seasonal ingredients and creations that come out of my tiny kitchen.

Happy Christmas to you and your readers.
