Behind The Scenes

My garden in September

I started keeping this garden diary in September 2013, so this post marks one whole year of recording my garden every month. I find it interesting to look back and see the changes to my garden throughout the seasons and note the progress made and challenges fought in making my garden as productive as possible. 487 more words

I just realized I forgot to post photos from the 4th of July. My grandmother’s house is on Vashon Island.
