My Summer Garden

I have not written in this blog for many weeks;  my mind has been occupied with the ideas from the conferences I’ve been attending.  But even more, it’s been occupied with my new garden, which is now displaying the fruits of my plantings and transplantings and plannings.

Here’s what it looked like in August of 2015:

This doesn’t begin to show the transformation.   I’ll try to add more in another entry.

I made a diagram of my garden plan ( the space layout was already in place, but  my plan shows where I planned to place things)

I know it’s hard to read, but you get the idea of the scope of the project.
