Gone, but not forgotten...

Gazing from my studio to the garden I see bare beds, empty tomato pavillions and vacant spaces for which I am planning already. However, the rememberance of what was there is always with me in more than memory, but in pictures too.




Here are: Calendulas, Buckwheat, and Zinnias with Tomatoes in what was the peas early on. I'd already forgotten about the Zowie Zinnias and Caliopsis. We don't have early pollinators so I always plant buckwheat early to draw them in for the tomato blossoms. Buckwheat reseeds itself and it easy to pull up if it is in my way. It is beneficial to the soil, drawing minerals from the deeper regions closer to the surface. AND! it is a lovely white bloom in the garden.

Pretty! I am going to try some of that buckwheat. I bought seed years ago and never used it. I wonder how long it stays viable?

Connie, I've had seeds for years, however, I'd suggest you a try few newer seeds from me when I come so you can experiment. There is NOTHING like an experiment, I think. I'll bring some on Friday.

I cannot believe how beautiful your garden was. I'm impressed. It must give you a lot of joy to tour it. I know mine does.

So, so lovely! Those pictures and rememberances are going to get you through the upcoming winter, as well as dreaming up what seeds will be planted in next years garden...
