My favourite time of year (does anyone really like February?). The valley is looking pale and dry and parched. But March is here. Hooray! Hopefully we're over the worst of the heat and can look forward to the autumn rains. And more harvesting in the garden.
Here is a funny patch. We are in the middle of landscaping this part of our garden. We want some retaining walls built when time and money allows. In the meantime, I planted things in this patch in attempt to keep the weeds down. And yes dear reader, it may look like a weedy mess, but actually, hidden amongst there, growing like crazy are pumpkins, potatoes, rocket, tomatoes and Italian parsley. There's also a huge strawberry patch and a tiny baby crab apple tree. I think it all comes together to create a beautiful delicious mess. We're looking forward to the autumn harvest.
Up the back, you can just make out the top of a tee pee. Because all the cool gardens have a tee pee don't they?
