Vegetable garden (above), herb bed (below).
The apple trees are happier this year. They've been neglected for so long that Jim pruned them this year with the chainsaw. Some of the older trees didn't appreciate the loss of all those gigantic sucker branches, and aren't producing fruit this year. By contrast, the younger apple trees are doing much better!
And then, there's the flowers. The echinacea bush is just starting to bloom. My gardening friend told me that although echinacea is an annual, it will happily re-seed and spread if I let it. Ooooooh, flowers that don't need my help? Sign me up!
My favorite plant is the lavender. It grows, spreads, seeds, and de-bugs itself entirely without my help.
Someday, Haiku Farm will be completely knee-deep in lavender plants!Life is good.
