Small Space Garden Update…

Well, it’s been several months and we have the hope of harvesting some fruit from this small bed.

The columnar apple tree ‘north pole’ is fruiting. There are a lot of little apples on this small tree.

The second photo shows all the strawberries that are fruiting around the apple tree, in this small section. (there are over a hundred strawberries in the other garden spaces)

The pot is containing 3 kinds of mint. We are keeping them here rather than the herb garden because they are so invasive.

Soon we will be eating strawberries, ( if we can beat the animals to them.)

The weather has been very, very, very wet for the last month or so. The warm weather crops are growing very slowly. Slugs are fat and happy.

About ourhomeinthewoods

I am a wife, mother and nana to an amazing little girl! My husband and I have been working on a huge DIY project for since 1999 and for the foreseeable future. A great house and garden on almost 10 acres in the beautiful, scenic Snoqualmie Valley in the Pacific Northwest. We are very enthusiastic amature gardeners and do-it-yourselfers. We also try to balance great results with great economy, or in other words, we love saving money. The more we save, the more we can spend on more great plants!
