I’ve been a bit MIA.
As I’ve said, our garden was on the West Seattle Edible Garden Tour over the weekend. So we had a lot of primping, prepping and stuff to get done.
It was a fantastic day with so many lovely and interesting visitors. We are guessing that we had between 80-100 visitors. It was really great to share the transformation of the yard and meet some of the readers (hi!).
Did you miss it? I’ll take you on a virtual garden tour (and this months Mid-Month Meanderings). If you want to see how it has progressed over the year check here, here, here, here, or here. It is pretty amazing to look back at February and see how much has grown!
The U-shaped raised beds from the un-decorated edge & our re-purposed ladder-bean trellis
The raised beds from the other side with mosaics, the trellis & nasturtiums. You can make out the tomato cages also.
Pumpkin? Tomato? You decide! But cool mosaic eh?
The base of the ladder-bean trellis. The beans are a bit puny yet, but it is the 3rd & 4th sowing due to the slugs. I made the collars around them with PVC pipe I had on hand and copper tape. Seems to have worked!
Borage...so pretty! A fave of the bees and the people. And the gin.
A different view of the raised beds over toward the aspens and little patio
Corn mosaic. I'm telling you fun! It also might be the only corn we get this year...
Aren't shallots pretty?
Kale, sunflowers, garlic, squash & asparagus
Summer squash- we have a variety. Also somewhat puny due to 'sluggage'.
First tomato! Early Siletz
Cucumbers that I had to get as starts because the slugs at all that I grew from seed. Boo.
A side bed with strawberries, corn, itsy bitsy cauliflower, kohlrabi & beans.
Come on corn! You can do it! Small still, but healthy.
My first kohlrabi! My grandpa always grew kohlrabi. I don't know if his got munched on like this though.
Sorrel, tarragon and savory. Oakleak hydrangea and random antique objects.
Entry side bed with greens
The clover & eco-lawn. People loved it. Makes you want to run barefoot doesn't it?
Starts getting ready to be fit in for fall/winter.
Tater Tower with exclusive art by the Babylady
We had informational signs all over.
Garlic scapes ready for picking, wine/beer bottle edging and asparagus in the back.
New plum tree, herbs, sunflowers and broccoli.
Parking area garden is busting!
Oh, crocosmia...I love you!
