I’ve not had to do much with these wonderful gardens this year, thankfully. The rains and the sun and the insects and the fertile soil have been giving the plants what they need for the most part. I come and harvest and trim and applaud nature. One of these days, I’m going to try to list the diversity of plants that are growing. It astounds me that so much can be growing in such a small space. To view the images, you can just roll your cursor over the pictures below. You’ll get most of the captions. Or click on a picture and it will go to a slideshow with full captions. Use the arrows to click through. Enjoy!
