I’ve written a handful of posts, but like a bad hostess, have neglected to give a tour of my own patio garden. It’s a constant work in progress, so I’ll show a few shots to take you through its progression. Click to embiggen the photos.
I started just a few floral containers and fruit trees in 2008. By 2009, I was completely obsessed with gardening and started adding more edibles, including cucumbers, a fig tree, a dwarf meyer lemon tree, navajo upright thornless blackberries, blueberries, eggplants, purple bell peppers, mohawk peppers, and strawberries.
In 2010, I’ve added snow peas, onions, carrots, kale, rainbow chard, and a lime tree to the mix as well. Not enough to live on, but it’s so satisfying to eat something I’ve grown myself. I”ve also added a lot more succulents for their ease of care, and even a small alpine rock garden in a hypertufa trough.
