Garden

 

This garden spot has been called the kitchen garden, then herb garden.  Twenty five years ago it was two 8’X8′ plots separated by a stone path.  It got plenty of afternoon sun.  As trees grew and  shaded the area, vegetable plants did not fare well.  Several years ago the area was enlarged, bounded by the block retaining wall and filled with top soil.  The containers are temporary homes for plants till fall planting.  Tomato plants are the tallest.  Herbs include oregano, lemon balm, horehound, mint, rue, basil, parsley and catnip!  The coneflowers are particularity bold this summer.  All in all, this is the best season of 25!
