Check out Katie’s place, one of our featured gardens AND help us say thanks to one of our generous sponsors, Tiny House Treats!
From Katie: I really want our home to help serve as an educational stop and opportunity to talk about invasive plants such as bindweed and honeysuckle. Over the past 3 years, we’ve pretty much torn out our entire garden space, laid soil, laid cardboard and more soil, mulched everything, and hoped for the best. Bindweed killed our entire pollinators garden and majority of the rest of our gardens, so last year we started from scratch.
My garden is definitely not the prettiest, by miles (and anyone who knows my plot at he community garden knows this, too!), but I always have a nice harvest. This year we moved our entire fruit and veggie garden because of bindweed. Though we are still fighting some of it off, we have had lots of success. This year we’ve grown strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black raspberries, tomatoes, tomatillos, sweet and spicy peppers, cucumbers, corn, a ton of herbs, and peaches! We also have restarted our native pollinators garden and have a very delicate fairy garden in the back. We are also attempting to add in a rain garden and an herb garden specifically for our chickens. With all of our gardens and chickens, it’s never a dull moment!
I’ll also have watermelon on hand from the community garden and hopefully some salsa for tasting.
Today, we also recognize garden tour sponsor, TINY HOUSE TREATS. Thank you for your support!
Our mission at Tiny House Treats is to be your neighborhood treat destination.
