The gardens on Poplar Ridge are entering their 4th season, and looking better than ever! The extra time that I have had to spend on planting and weed control are showing, as is the fact that the continued amendments to the soil are really helping to improve the growing power! I have finally stopped kicking myself for the back injury which slowed me down last Fall, as the garden neglect does not seem to have made a huge negative impact on the garden...just goes to show how much better it could be next year with a little more TLC this Fall!
Here is a portion of what I harvested from the garden on Monday: Baby Lettuce and Spinach, Radishes and Asparagus. I also picked (and ate) the first strawberry yesterday!
The Irises and Lupine are just about done.
