|Our native honeysuckle, planted against a brick wall, has bloomed all winter. It was ready and waiting for the hummers.|
We've started our new bed. The Serviceberry we planted last Fall survived. Yay! It is in the No Dig, Foodscape experiment bed. Watch Charles Dowding on Youtube for details on No Dig. He's also written several books. Brie Arthur from NC introduced me to the foodscape concept. We'll see how it goes...plants already there are doing well for now.
What's planted and growing?
Lettuce (Black Seeded Simpson, Romaine, Oakleaf, Red Sails)
Carrots (Scarlett Nantes, Red Core Chantenay)
Leeks, onions, garlic
Kale (Lacinto, Curly Dwarf)
Potatoes (White, Yukon Gold, Red Norland, Russian Banana)
Radishes (Cherry Belle)
Herbs (Rosemary, Parsley, Fennel, Sage, Chives, Borage, Dill, Basil
Tomatoes (That's another post)
The humming birds have been here since the last week of March. They feed at our native honeysuckle daily! Yay, again!
