I'm sitting here posting these pictures while listening to Carly Simon. My 18 year old has a hilarious love of 70's music. I'm not complaining..... Here are some pictures to catch up on what's going on in the garden. It has matured in so many ways. I'll post plenty of pictures as we go, but here's a start.
My style of gardening is slightly controlled wild abundance. Throw enough seeds in the garden and something is going to grow. Different years yield different abundance. Makes it exciting and fun. My family isn't always sure what I am going to be dragging in. The goal is to have variety and something maturing throughout the year. Right now I am harvesting, beans, beets, carrots, asparagus, chard, collards, mustard, a variety of herbs, mulberries, black berries, green onions..........................I'm sure I missed something.
I love to save seed. These seed pods are from a Chinese green. I bought the first seeds from Bakers Creek Heirloom seed Company years ago. There has never been a need to plant them again. I have plenty of volunteers each year. I do save some seed each year. Just in case!
