Valerie reminded me today that I need to post more about gardening. I’ve also been meaning to post some photos for my gardening buddy who recently moved away [who’s on dial-up, and will hate me for this post, then love me]. I have a decidedly unconventional garden with streaks of conventionality running about. I just got in from taking a bunch of photos, so here’s a photo-essay for your perusal:
Oats breaking new ground. In the city.
Apricot - Capilano, year 2
French Fingerling Potato - my fav
Wild Strawberries - ground cover extraodinaire
Nodding Onion in bloom. Tough to acquire, and damn tasty.
Red Sparkle Apples - my wine apple that I care about deeply
Mustard - my fav + saved seed (cost=0) = wicked QPR
Lavender - I have an affection for this plant, and grow lots.
Jerusalem Artichokes, along the front sidewalk, heh.
Garlic, doing heck knows what - C, help me out here...
Black Currant & Red Currant. I'm starting to have a thing for shrubs.
Lovage. 8-9' tall lovage.
Peas, lincoln. Conventional, see? My first crop ever, I'm proud.
Bloody Dock - from Gwen, year 2.
