My Garden

This is my own garden. I post pictures frequently, so this is mostly an update. It’s still young and very much in development. And wild. I always sit around thinking about what I could do to make it less weedy and wild, but the truth is, I love it wild. I want it to feel kind of like I’m up in the mountains hiking, not in some over-manicured boring greenville. I want to grow food. And, I really want my garden to be a place where I go to have fun and relax: not just a place I go to do yard work.

In the foreground is my strawberry patch that has been very productive this spring.

More strawberries, hardy kiwi and a sandbox.

The pond is constructed! It is in need of plants, fish, and we have plans to surround it with planters. The construction job is not the best, (it was the first-time ever laying bricks) but I’m really enjoying it.

The herb spiral has a whole bunch of herbs I don’t ever remember to use.

Butterfly weed with chamomile in the background.

A different kind of butterfly weed, that appeared spontaneously. So it’s technically a weed, but what a gorgeous one!

So lots of weed, some fruit trees, and also tomatoes and peppers. You can back a lot into a space.

Clover, chickens, and more fruit trees and vegetables hiding in there as well.

The tail end of the spring garden. Broccoli, lettuce, parsley, with melons in the background that should fill in over the summer.
