I have been in and out and all around and not landing any place too long for the past few weeks-LOL. I tried several times this week to post or write something but to no avail! I decided today I would post what is blooming in our garden. I am more of a visual artist, so some Sundays I will just show you the splendors of our Urban Potager….
This past week it has been all about the iris in our urban potager. I feel my Iris are a “fun plant” just for me…..I plant a lot to feed people, soil, and pollinators, but sometimes you just have to include “fun plants”….and an Iris is like an exclamation point in the spring garden!
These were given to me by my mother several years ago from her garden friends…
In between some fun plants are all the urban potager plants providing food….it is okay to have a few fun plants that are just for beauty.We have been eating salads for a few months this year since I started some lettuce under lights to plant out early this year…
These were some purple snow peas I was trying this year
Nemophila Baby Blue Eyes are spring bloomers I planted this year for the bees….
Matthiola Incana-Ten- week stock plants are blooming beautifully, but I know it won’t be too much longer..
Nine bark blooms are delicate , but the leaves and bark of this plant are the true beauty.
Baptista Carolina Moonlight blooming is a sign spring is finally here!
Petunia I started from seed in early spring are starting to take off in the garden + in pots…
grabbed some radish, kale, swiss chard, and parsley to make
breakfast Sunday morning….an urban potager with food, flowers, herbs and fresh eating. The only way to live!
