The kids and I did some work in the garden today and I must say, it is looking great. We gave away our play structure in the spring and replaced it with three raised beds, new playground chips and a “patch”. The patch is for more uncontrollable plants like giant pumpkins and squash. We’ve added rows of beets, lettuce and radishes too, for good measure. In the raised beds we have a little bit of everything, but quite a bit of garlic – I think my daughter may be responsible for that. I’ve added a row of zinnias and have a packet of cosmos seeds to add as well. An old fashioned vegetable garden isn’t complete until it has cutting flowers as well.
The front yard is looking amazing. We’ve got a few more fruits and veggies added.
poppies & rhodies a fig (had to use my macro lens) last year’s artichoke survived
a cat lupine, self-seeded an orange azalea
And don’t worry. I’m still stitching but it is a sketchbook kind of weekend.
