My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

The Corner on First - Update

The area went from this:

And now it looks like this:
A very successful experiment, one that we'll probably repeat again next year.  The bummer is that the marigolds are annuals and we'll have to replant them every year, but it's not a whole lot of effort, and well worth the splash of color all summer.

I think the corner looks fantastic! I missed a few posts, so I've been playing catch-up. Your garden has really grown well this year, looking forward to seeing how your potato harvest goes.
