This picture perfectly represents my garden; towering slate-colored cauliflower leaves with swatches of cilantro peaking through. I let my cilantro go to seed last year and it did a perfectly good job of replanting itself……everywhere.
My backyard is broken up into four patches. Above is the largest patch with the tomatoes and winter squashes. Below was where I planted my first garden four years ago that now holds the melons, potatoes, corn, and a few other things.
I also planted a few strawberry plants in another patch this year that hopefully will give us some berries in the years to come.
And the fourth patch was my impromptu attempt to fend off pesky ants which tend to invade our house every summer. Apparently they don’t like the smell of lavender or mint so I planted a few plants close to the house, which hopefully will grown and I can transplant next summer. Here’s some other shots of what a North Dakota garden looks like in Mid-July.
