The garden in pictures. It is so pretty right now.

Last year in the garden my nasturtiums were tiny and had few flowers. This winter a plant came up in the greenhouse from the compost I put in the greenhouse bed. It grew and grew and is now about three feet across with lovely pink flowers. I thought it was a bad type of nasturtium that grew super small. I stand formerly crappy soil strikes again. 

Need to move this beautiful dwarf iris into the garden. It is much brighter than this looks. 

Alice by the fuchsia. 

Strawberries looking pretty good. 

Fall rye cleaned out totally and beds ready to go. 

Rainier Cherry blossoms.

Blueberry walk in full bloom.


  1. The Blueberry Walk is looking particularly good. Also, I'm envious of that hoop-house you have. It looks nice and robust.

    1. Thank you Mark. I find myself looking at it a lot. I keep remember the muddy pathway there and nothing to look at. Now, a pretty little walk. At my class last weekend someone mentioned propogating blueberries by cutting. I have a Duke that is the best I've ever tasted. Going to try cuttings.

  2. Your beds look fantastic!! Oh my goodness. After seeing it's progress the past year, it is truly amazing Erin. I hope you are proud of it. Look at that Kale!

    1. Thank you so much Brenda. I am so proud of the gardens. I am having the best time. I went to a permaculture Food Forest course this past weekend. 2.5 days. It was awesome. I'll email all about it.
