Primary Earth-friendly Gardening Tenents:

how does the garden grow

Photos of the garden one month after the NBB garden tour. What a difference a month makes -
The biggest changes are in the backyard - where additional beds have been added and the vegetables have started to really take off finally!
Looking ahead to fall, I can already see where plants will need moved or divided going into next season. Additionally, we have determined several projects that we want to complete for next season - an arbor entrance, a privacy screen/fence near the back alley . . .
