This bed is doing very good, in spite of the very hot weather we now have, that came on immediately. See the line of rocks at the edge of the foundation?
As I weed and plant, the rocks found are tossed that way. I have a spot in the front yard that will need a few more rocks, when I am ready, I will harvest these.
Two artichokes with sun blanched leaves and a rosemary plant in the corner. These will be perfect for this area, they need full sun, and will definitely get it here! When the artichokes are older and grow tall, they will offer a little shade to the kitchen sink area.....
This is the end of the house, to the west. Lots of sun and warmth all day. I think this will be a great area for the rhubarb to be transplanted into. The dirt is not clay packed and it will be easy to work in composted manure, the area wide enough to give plenty of spacing between the plants.
I have decided I want an apricot tree. Do you have one? What variety is the best one, in your opinion. I think a semi dwarf tree is a good choice for the home orchard. It offers fresh fruit, plenty for jam and a few pints of canned fruit.
Another item crossed off the list! Using existing materials, we built a little "patio" for the table to sit on. No more moving the table to mow the lawn, and the table is stable on this base instead of the lawn.
How is your garden growing?
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
