Huh, after a month of blooming yellow with orange spots, suddenly the Peach Melba Nasturtiums have thrown a red flower!

Finally planting something in the raised beds! I’m adding the perennial herbs to see if they can make it over the winter up here, and planting some garlic today.

Take a look at the Square Foot Gardening method, it’s pretty cool! Rather than worry so much about rows and individual plant spacing it converts everything into 1’ square grids, and I’ve found a site with lists of common plants and how to space them. It’s helped with spacing things, and I’m actually going to have more space than I originally thought!

We have sunflowers! Out of 9 plants, 2 survived. There are other buds on these, and the plants are very short, barely above my knees, but I probably planted a dwarf variety without noticing it.

Fall is here!

It’s been a while since I posted, partly because life got a bit rough and partly because things are winding down a bit for the year. We’ve been doing various chores around the house and yard like painting the deck (dusty brown to a slightly fresher shade of brown), to filling in the rest of the hole I dug in the spring before I really planned out what I wanted to grow, to building the first 4×4 planter box/raised bed for next year. It’s gained a layer of gopher wire over the bottom, and I’m going to stain it before putting it in the garden patch area.

I’m going to post a few quick photos and updates as bigger picture posts rather than the smaller ones, since it’s been a while.
