By August, the garden is typically in high gear. Here we had a nice variety of good stuff– Purple Pole Beans, Cucumbers, Green Zebra tomatoes, Fox Cherry tomatoes, basil and thyme.
The hops rhizomes were planted at the end of April, 2014, as described in an earlier post.
By mid-May: signs of life. Couple of little shoots springing up in one planter.
What’s the memory garden? This is a long-term project I’ve had in my head for many years, and will take years to realize. I thought it would be nice to include in my larger garden a collection of plants that were from places I’ve lived over the years, and I’ve lived in a lot. Collect a seed from, or take a cutting of, a noteworthy plant, perhaps a run-of-the-mill maple or an extraordinary palm, from an address where I’ve lived, and try to grow it.
2014 was the first year we threw down some annual wildflowers along the inner sides of the east and west beds, along the rather harsh concrete border.
