07 In the Garden

… there have been many gardeners who write well, or writers who garden well… i am neither but i will do my best to extol the attention paying virtues of gardening, especially when it is gardening for food… that is what i have chosen to make my specialty, since i love to cook… H manages the ornamental gardening with some heavy lifting help from me…

… my food gardening is constrained to herbs, tomatoes, onions, leeks and zucchini this year…

… the spot in our yard with the most sun is paved over with an asphalt drive so i have worked out a raised bed system using livestock watering troughs fitte with 4” perforated drain pipe to provide a water reservoir… i can go days without watering even in height of summer…

… there are four of them at present…

… thyme, sage and oregano planted last year and returning, tomatoes and zucchini added this year…

… dill, tarragon, tomatoes and zucchini…

… onions, leeks and tomatoes…

… rosemary, parsley, basil and tomatoes…

…it’s all experimental for me, i am in the learning phase…
