This year my landlord gave me a semicircular strip of land where his field meets his lawn. He ran his riding mwer around in a circle and I added organic material to it to make a lasagne garden. I've decided to make it into a cutting garden for the pleasure of flowers in my house and giving bouquets to all my friends for theirs. Previously I got interested in gardening when my sister let me improve some abandoned garden areas at her house, which backs up under a mountain the the east and has lots of tall pines and maples all around. I learned how to get the most color out of shade to partial shade. But now I have this sunny, rainbow -shaped garden at my house that will get sun all day, and I have planted:
three colors of lysianthus: carmine, blue picotee and blue,
tall white rocket snapdragons,
five oriental lilies,
two pink calla lilies,
blue bachelor buttons,
sunflowers, 3 kinds
multi- colored rocket snapdragons,
three kinds of sweet peas,
and soon to be giant zinnias.
I am so psyched.
