Before shot of the pond border garden. I weeded and even mulched in some spots last fall, but you’d never know it.

Photo 2
After shot: strawberries unveiled!

Photo 3
I weeded and installed pea brush in the front hedgerow. I also planted the smaller quantities (from swaps) of bean seeds and a patch of wheat.

Photos 4 & 5
Mud! The main vegetable garden is pretty much unworkable after yet another rainstorm.

I also took a number of photos around the garden for updating progress on folia. I harvested some multiplier onions. I’ve never grown them before, but they seem to be doing well. Am I supposed to leave one onion in each clump and let it flower? or do I harvest them all and start fresh with new bulbs next spring?

    I love your pond – it’s beautiful.
    And ugh! mud! Hope your soil dries out nicely soon (but not too much).
