Since I last wrote about the garden, Mike and I hauled a several cubic yards of soil and mulch to the garden. Plants have come to the garden via 72-cell seed flats, or the Wylde Center sale, the Trees Atlanta sale, or a generous neighbor. I'm cultivating 3 rows: a large row of brassicas, strawberries, spinach, peas, and chamomile, a row of flowers, and a curved row of root vegetables, miscellaneous herbs, and dahlias. Nearly everything is teeny right now.
This year is much more flower-heavy than ever before, because I'm taking advantage of Georgia's climate- I found most flowers except for poppies, salvia and calendula would sizzle in my sandy San Diego garden. Monarda Bee Balm that I've barely kept alive in San Diego for months perked up immediately upon moving here and now is the lush sky-stretching plant it's supposed to be. The random wood is either a stool or destined for Mike's fire pit.
Above you can see chamomile seedlings, the neighborhood stray cat, seedlings in the brassica section, and a tray of milkweed seedlings. Below are the beet seedlings after thinning.
