Garden Journal 8-27-2020

Wow, this is the 23rd garden journal entry this year.  Last year we wrapped things up early as we were preparing for a trip to New Mexico, so there were only #17.  We’ll carry on at least through September this year and some of these beans won’t be mature until the middle of October… I’m sort of kind of looking at taking a trip in later October maybe, but we’ll see…

The Edible Garden all looks good…beans have sprung up, broccoli is holding its own, and the garlic chive is having its 15 minutes of fame.

The Sunflowers Are Smiling…

Still chopping and dipping, saute-ing and grilling..

Out in the Peace/Bird Garden, I pulled up all the dasies except for the corners; pulled up the lonely liatris and lost phlox, then shuffled around the rudbeckia and echinacea to form some symmetry of sorts.  The result shows more space and returns somewhat to my original vision to use all native plants.  The corner daisies will be replaced with blueberry bushes as soon as I can.

Our bird population seems to have picked up in the last week or so; possibly overnight visitors already?  I had seen very few goldfinches this year, but there have been several feasting on the seedheads of the spent flowers — a very welcome sight, though I have no pictures, so you’ll have to take my word for now.  Maybe next week?

 

Keep on Growing…
