I haven't had much of a chance to blog about our 2015 garden. After two years of having our community garden crops end up in the stomachs of a never ending series of garden pests (mostly mammals), we had almost given up.
But the true gardener - my spouse (our garden is really his) - doesn't give up easily. Even though he has only been able to pay limited attention to his community garden due to a family situation. So, part of it lies unplanted (but with a thick layer of mulch). We already have one possible crop failure - onions, normally our "go to" crop.
But the good news is - our other crops are still there. Uneaten. Unlike the last two years.
We were told, by a master gardener at the nearby Cutler Botanic Gardens, that it is no accident that we have had fewer animals chowing down on our garden. We had lost many of our crops in the last two years. Apparently, the severe winter was also severe for garden eating animals.
We can only hope that the garden continues on without that much input from my spouse. If all goes well, I may be able to entertain you with some flower pictures soon. In the meantime:
What are you doing this week?
