Planting Journal

This morning there wasn't any frost. I planted 6 lavender plants and 5 artichoke plants in the Three Sisters Garden. These were placed in the rows that are visible if one is looking into the property from the main gate. I had already placed 3 Canary Island date palms in the first row. Upon turning up the dirt in the row I found a wonderful humus rich soil.

I didn't shovel dirt or compost today because I was in pain from working so much on it the day prior, but I did mulch over the finished parts with straw. The main hugel is nearly done. It needs dirt over the south side of it and some wood border along the bottom as a finishing touch. The border helps keep the dirt in place.

No pictures today. Sorry!
