You’ll recall from my last report that my poor nasturtiums were baking in the sun. I’d mulched them with straw and was hoping for a good future.
I’m happy and sad to report that the front yard garden (of which the nasties were a part) has taken a decidedly different turn. We’ve dreamed of adding on to the house since we moved in 14 years ago and have finally taken the plunge.
As you can see, the yard is completely demolished and the veggies and nasturtiums shown above are no more. I still have quite a few seeds and will plant them again next year in a shadier spot. The Sacramento climate is not to blame, just my choice of location. My friend Carri is just a few miles away and hers went gangbusters!
Once construction is complete, I’ll be landscaping the front yard with perennials, veggies, and just a teeny bit of grass. Jackjack suggested that we plant the whole front yard with strawberries and green beans. Now there’s a boy who thinks like his mama!
