It rained a lot in May 2017 here in Mid-Hudson Valley -- it is very green all around and my lettuces love it!

So, my comfrey reached nearly six feet high, remarkable given that I don't think it's gotten above maybe three or three and a half feet before.  The bees had exhausted it and it it was flopping everywhere, so I chopped it down and put it around two new plum trees.  So, yeah, mulching with comfrey is, in fact, a thing.

This is my attempt to prove to myself that you don't need any fancy grow lights to get plants to grow.

These are sweet potato plants growing under ordinary red and blue led lights. I left the lights turned on all day and all night.

The plants were growing around 4 inches per day!

After seeing all the beautiful gardens, I'm embarrassed to post our little plot.  We had a surprise guest in our garden this year: upshoots from chicken feed left over. I guess I need to cut back on the sunflower seeds in my fermented grains 😉

The Sleeping Lady is apparently modeled after a garden sculpture in Britain. She looks a little like Buddha to me. This is quite a large sculpture in Beacon Hill Park, Victoria British Columbia.

I think it must be modeled after one of the sculptures in the lost gardens of heligan.

Probably this one, the Mud Maid.

Seems about right.

I took these photographs about 100 yards from the statue.

When we moved to our new house we put up two little Rutland wind generators at the top of the hill on the north side of our house on land which was really heavy clay. They turned almost all the time !



We planted windbreaks to protect the road and the front and east side of the house from the wind and now the trees and shrubs really doing a great job and have improved the comfort around the house and they've greatly improved the views too.

Those same little Rutlands now (A higher mast is in preparation)


hardworking hedges


Ducks all over the place because there are lots of ponds in this area in the heavy clay


Corn dryer at the end of a wind tunnel


View to the ruined pigeonnier (Note the neighbour's Lombardy poplars on the horizon in the photo below, are leaning from their exposure to the west wind and the trees and shrubs on our land are still.)


Note too that my signature had changed - I've been busy this year writing up my diploma and finally....

how big is your chunk of land? I love the rainbow row concept and what it looks like in practice. What gave you the idea and how do you decide what gets planted next to what?

Thanks!


Sara, the rainbow row was found photo from the Eden Project in Cornwall: http://www.edenproject.com/visit
I teach permaculture classes & do a lot of image research to make my Libre Office Presentation slides.

I love the way you design your garden especially the first one. I would love to add something like that in my garden.
