Occasionally, I post pictures of the way the garden looks right now. The last time I did this was May 1, 2013
It was a hard winter, and many of my garden plants died. I also added many things to our little property. I think it's time for another one.

is oregano (with dianthus in the middle). The rest of the bed had

is potato grow bags.
The hazelnuts, pawpaw trees and the pineapple guavas are all really small. I have the tomato trellises around them to keep the kids and their friends from stepping on them.
