Here is the update.
|A field of volunteer dill. I have peppers planted here as well. Once they establish themselves, I will be mulching over the dill to let the peppers thrive.|
|Strawberry plants that I separated from my strawberry patch last fall. These will spread and be a ground cover for my elderberry bushes.|
|Looking along one side of my fence. I have annual lettuce and then a bed of herbs in the two beds next to my dog.|
|Lupine plant. These are pretty cool plants. They are actually a legume so they put back nitrogen in to the soil. They also reseed like crazy so one plant can make many more.|
|Year two asparagus. I took two meals from these beds but then let the plants grow to make sure they grow for many years to come.|
|My beds I made last year. I have mixed lettuce, kale, turnips, beets, daikon radish, garlic to name a few of the plants in this section.|
|Painted lady enjoying some kale nectar.|
As you can see, my garden is off to a pretty good start. The year has been pretty dry so far but we just received 2 inches over the past 24 hours that soaked in pretty well so hopefully I will be able to go three years in a row without watering.
