I didn't plant a lot of flowers. Partly because that is an expensive way to feed deer...or maybe rabbits. Mostly because I don't know exactly what I want to plant. And the soil is terrible, so that even with a lot of amendments, a good portion of what I plant dies.
This is where they dug out for the basement, so it is mostly hard packed clay, shale and rocks.
I got a few things in the vegetable garden. Just one tomato this year.
Last year they got too much rain and I had problems with them splitting on top. I also got borers in my zucchini, AGAIN. So I will probably end up buying those things from the local Farmer's Market in Daleville.
I planted a rhubarb last year that is finally producing this year. I may use it for muffins or small cakes for guests. I planted a second one, in case they are a hit. I always have to have basil.
My garden will never be as good as the one tended by http://www.dianecaytonhakey.com/ Go check hers out. Superb.
I need to buy more plants, but can't decide what to use. Rosemary for sure. Does anyone start corn in pots?
Southern States is my next stop. I may try some seeds for the corn.
On the other hand, the grass is growing great. So that makes us farmers. Our crop is hay. And we watch it grow. Doing a good job of that!
