Ideas to Check My Garden in July


Dear. I really neglected to provide updates and photos of the garden the first year. The last photo I posted was on June 29th. We were on our way to Denver and I wanted a recording of that before we left. It was a little wet and sometimes cold Until then, June was still a little wet and sometimes cold. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Truth be told, I generally neglected to take pictures of this. However, I spent a lot of time there and put a lot of work into it. I’m glad. I finally found a place where I am happy where I am at the same Time that I am being. There are little things that are for sure: the perennials, which are smaller than I would like; the lavender that has not been transplanted well from a lifetime indoors; the small piece of grass that I was too tired to dig up; my unsuccessful attempts to cover the low fences with the vines of my choice (well, yes, you can have it!); a desire for large stones that I can use to create more structure. There are others, but for now I’m fine. It’s a work in progress. Thinking back to what the garden looked like when we moved in, compared to what we have accomplished given the Mania of our schedules this year… he’s feeling pretty good. And when I’m alone, without meeting someone else’s taste or approval, that’s more than enough. I love her.

Here are some pictures. I promise to post more in the future. There are many little corners and areas of interest that I want to tell you about, but they each deserve their own contribution. This is just a taste to get things done.

We brought the bench seat (in the back) from the old seat when we moved. I thought it would be nice to have a place to sit at the bottom of the garden, even if the path leading to it is now covered with explosive greenery. I recently found the red bank in the trash. These are zucchini flowers and coriander seeds that I collected that morning.

One of the three bush zucchini varieties that I planted this year. This is a frying pan. It has produced many male flowers and is only now starting to expel the first fruits.

Red cabbage, nasturtium and variegated amaranth Not planted under a few tall and indeterminate tomatoes.

This image shows two large raised beds on the west side. The first is home to eight indeterminate (weeping) tomatoes underplanted with sorted basil. The second contains 4 indeterminate and 4 specific (bush) tomatoes.

The lacinated kale is available in an old crate in the woods. The jar behind is my Oxalis iron cross. It is still strong and produces flowers exactly a month after. The Red thing is the largest Amaranth I have ever grown.

A close-up of one of the Teepee structures that interests me. It consists of 4 diamond-shaped inserts, one indeterminate per insert. As the plants grow, I attach the main stem and cut off the excess foliage to promote good blood circulation.

This is one of the high beds, it’s more than close to the house. The entire west side consists of raised flower beds that we built from wood waste found locally or that were given to us. The room was very clean and comfortable. The plant in the foreground is coriander /coriander that has been sown (I collect and eat the seeds). The plant behind it is Tzimbolo, a crazy pseduo edible Solanum that I grew from seeds. It wasn’t supposed to be there, but I didn’t have anywhere else to place it. This is my second year of growing this plant. More on this in a future article.

Creating more structure is the next thing on the agenda. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had to do it to save time, but that’s the main problem I have with the garden right now. The plants were all used randomly. The goal at the time was only to get the choice on the ground and fast! It is a place of a jungle and a difficult entrance into the weeds and the sea. The Cat is good. She has a special place where she snuggles with the soaking tube (when it’s not on, of course!).

Halfway up the long bed is a galvanized sink that I bought at a flea market this spring. As soon as I brought it home, I put it there because I didn’t know what to do with it. It stayed, and I have since planted it as a pond containing large-leaved tropics (giant papyrus and Alocasia/Colocasia). The grassy chose on the right side to eat Sorghum (black or red). I’m not sure yet). The purple thorn underneath is The Anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum). I am a fan of this plant and I am sure I will bring something chosen on the way to the garden where I grew up for years and years. Behind the Sorghum, you can see a garlic flower that I dropped (don’t do it if you want nice big bulbs). Bees love! There is one in this photo.

In the fall, as soon as the tender annuals die again, I intend to break this long space and make a path. I’m going to drop some off-we plants are the opportunity. We managed to create a bed inside this long spot, a dry bed full of silvery plants and hardy cacti and succulents. I will post about it separately because it needs its own input.
