Entry #19 The Garden in Spring

The garden has been a challenging project this year, but it’s always great when you can see things growing it in despite everything else. It has gone through many changes, but thankfully now there are flowers and vegetables in every planter. I hope the April rain will help it thrive.

PLANTER 1: Pumpkin and wildflowers, sunflowers, sweet peas

In the first planter, there is a great variety of flowers, such as many variants of wildflowers, sunflowers, and even Mammoth Sweet Peas. There is also a Pumpkin to give it that necessary festive spirit.

PLANTER 2: Broccoli, lettuce, Brussel sprouts, cabbage

In the second planter, I have put a series of delicious fall greens. To be exact, I have put in the legendary Belgian plant: Brussel sprouts. On top of that, I have planted Broccoli, lettuce, and cabbage

PLANTER 3: Tomatoes, strawberries, kale, basil

In the third planter, there is the most amazing summer blend. With the quiet, eloquent taste of Basil, paired with the juicy Maelstrom of tomatoes or strawberries, one can truly create the perfect meal for the day’s end.

PLANTER 4: DCL shaped Tulips, daffodils, crocuses

What I have put in this planter is fairly simple, with an array of the primarily Holland plant, tulips, Daffodils, and Crocuses. The way I have planted them spells DCL, which is the motto for my school.

PLANTER 5: Rhubarb, parsley, mint, rosemary, thyme, grape hyacinths

In this planter is the overwhelmingly massive Chinese plant, the Rhubarb. This magnificent specimen of its species has been with us for almost 6 years, giving us it’s delicious red stalks year after year. There is also other assorted herbs and flowers, such as parsley and grape hyacinths

PLANTER 6: Kale, Radicchio, Swiss chard, flowers

There are lots of multi-colored vegetables and flowers in this planter. Kale, radicchio, and Swiss chard are among the plants here.

PLANTER 7: Uchuvas (Peruvian ground cherries), flowers, Rhubarb, Lettuce

In this planter, we encounter the enigmatic Peruvian ground cherry, which many people don’t know to the degree one should with this sprawling, golden fruit, a true food of the gods. From the skeletal calyx to the perfectly formed pearl inside, everything about this plant is truly astounding, astonishing even. There is also lettuce and more Rhubarb, plus a couple of really cool flowers

PLANTER 8: Blueberry bushes, Peas, Beans, carrots, flowers

Here we have Blueberries, which are in fact a North American plant. I also planted a wide assortment of vines, including peas, beans, and lentils. There are also a variety of carrots.

In Planter 8, the final planter, we come to a close. Looking forward to seeing how they progress after the April rains. Thank you for coming on a wonder-flora journey!
