This a blog that I started and never got back to. It was supposed to be a garden update–hah! I was going to trash it and then I started to just look at the pictures and long for good weather. Pitiful–I’m Pitiful.
Anyway, I couldn’t bring myself to delete it. I took so many pictures this summer (which is how my blogs generally start–with an image). Somehow I didn’t get those blogs written at that time.
Well, I’m determined to catch up.
So–get ready for some timely and some untimely entries here on My Little Farm in Town. I think that some of the things I will write about will be useful to you or maybe just fun. Take Care, Begonia
This job, however took most of a Saturday and then a couple more trips to the village compost site for chips. Woodchips break down eventually and need to be replaced. They also create quite a nice seed bed. Last year I had so many little annuals and perennials popping up that I couldn’t bear to cover them.
This year I had no choice. The front garden looked too disreputable. The first step was digging out all of the weeds and seedling and harvesting the edible plants. In this case mache was the green that I harvested. After hauling away the weeds to the compost and transplanting stuff that I needed to fill some empty spots. I ended up with four dish pans of transplants for my neighbor who is always to take the overflow.
Here you can see the garden in all it’s early season perfection before I planted all those unruly tomatoes and peppers and green beans! Begonia
