Mid summer garden joy 💚 When I started my garden this year I was going to make a smaller one than last year. It's my second full growing season on this property and in this particular mountain microclimate and, having experimented with what works and what doesn't last year, I thought I was just going to plant the handful of veggies that I knew I'd have great success with and leave it at that. The garden devas took over, however, and my it turned out twice as big as last year. I put in one more vegetable bed, an edible flower bed, and a wildflower bed that the bees are loving. I ended up with a handful of large pots and utilized those for plants that need a lot of sun; I can move the pots around as needed to maximize sun exposure. I built out my herb bed and am experimenting with growing a few plant allies I have never worked with from scratch before. My lavender collection is growing, among other things. Sweet potato volunteers from my compost found their way into the mix as well. And I got a blueberry bush! So much for keeping it simple. 😂🌻🌱 . . . . #permaculture #growyourown #letfoodbethymedicine #herbalist #cascadia #instagood #livelovelaugh #picoftheday
