It's interesting to me how my soil differs around the yard. The back garden is boring, but the soil is always easy to work with. It's been a garden much longer than the front has been and the soil doesn't seem to dry and crack like some areas of the front. I need to continue to use mulches and have started using grass clippings again and leaf mold.
Here's the garden, as of yesterday.
|Mostly self-seeded back wall|
|Climbing beans to cover our front step railing, cabbages and tomatoes|
|My last perennial bed, with a few basil and tomatoes|
|My Mother's Day herb pot|
|Somehow it's more appealing than ever to sit here now that the bed is the right shape|
|Starting to eat our first strawberries!|
|View from the city sidewalk. One of those black pots has become one huge ant hill and I am NOT impressed.|
|First days of summer spent making Polly Pocket shelters and clothing out of flower petals and leaves.|
|My favourite prolific poppies|
|Keeping my pots alive!|
