Mid Spring Garden Update
My latest gardening activities include planting a start of chocolate mint, placing young tomato plants in trenches hollowed out from leaf mulch filled with old compost, and replacing a small triangular patch of lawn with annual flowers. Those flowers will be replaced in turn with perennial herbs later on.
I’m also dawdling in placing some variegated ornamental grasses I was given a few weeks ago. The variegation makes them tricky for me conceptually, because it makes their planting look permanently deliberate, even after the spaces between the original plants fill in with runners.
What’s going on in your garden?
