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.
