woah! you're garden is awesome. i have been reading your blog for a bit and it is really cool to see all the d.i.y. projects and things you are doing. very inspiring. danielle
Good job on your garden movie. It makes me jealous of all of the space you have for growing things. I bet that it will be a garden of Eden when it all matures.
Thanks for sharing your garden with us Wendy. Everything looks nice and healthy. You're use of all those raised beds and mulch must make weeding easier. You're herbs just need to find the right place in your garden. I'm sure with the system of back-up seed starting your using, you'll eventually hit on just the right spot to make them thrive.The blog is a daily pleasure for me. Thanks for keeping fun for us.
I like the use of PVC for your irrigation. Beautiful garden. I've got to get some olive trees going!
Great work! I'm about to plant melons and was wondering where I was going to plant them. Thanks for reminding me that underneath trees are a good choice. I have been having good luck with many herbs by planting them underneath under desert willows that have been trained to grow as trees, getting filtered sun from the south. Basil is an exception. It seems to love full sun all day long and a lot of water. Herbs in general tend to do best in poor soil, and many like to dry out before being watered again. A herb spiral would be a nice addition to your garden. Then you could experiment with many microcultures. Like you don't have enough projects to work on!I love your sunflowers. The first, and so far, only time I tried them, they roasted, fried, and shriveled up.
Awesome video - I can't wait to get our homestead garden started next year!
gosh, that peach tree really just popped!!!!the only tip i have is water at night, so the water has a chance to soak in before it evaporates in the sunlight. my father was a fabulous gardener, and that was one of his secrets.
wow, are those the mulnberry trees you planted a couple years back? They look huge!do you plant the potatoes in the tube so they're easier to harvest?did you know you can see the fibonacci sequence in the number of seeds around each circle in the sunflower head?Not sure the melons will survive under the pines since their needles are very acidic. Maybe when the pines are young it'll be fine, but blueberries, cranberries, azaleas, wintergreen, and other heather family plants will do well in the acidic pine soil.Nice job on the garden!
Awesome! You are very inspiring. Re herbs, they like dry "feet".
