The forest floor is filling with valuable plants – a Globe Artichoke just starting off, with stinging nettle in seed, and nasturtiums making their way.
A food garden is not always so pretty; the lawn is not cut clean, lumps of compost surround plants, cut broad bean stalks are laid straight back over the soil to create a green manure. Dandelions allowed to grow unharmed – heaven forbid! Sometimes messy is good, just like now. Maybe I’ll mow the lawn when it gets quiet, like in Winter…
I love all the green!!! I swear my yard is mostly rock and weeds! We can’t seem to grow anything in this soil! I’m always so jealous of other yards!
So sorry to hear that – there must be something that can grow there?
