2010 Garden - September
The best part of growing a garden is the ambiance it creates in that space. Walking through the greenery and flowers, watching the plants develop, leaves me in awe of Nature's process. No chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or insecticides were used in this garden. It remains 90% unblemished from the action of insects.
Most of what you see are actually the volunteers from seeds in last years compost. Due to the late start caused by the time it took to rebuild the soil, what was planted (in any remaining bare spots), was done so in mid August - mostly fall and winter crops (cilantro, lettuces, kale, chard, onions, cabbage, carrots, etc. primarily using seeds collected from our 2009 plantings.)
