DOWN THE (SHADE) GARDEN PATH
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.
