We are currently reaping the wonderful bounty from our community garden plot. This bouquet includes the unusual April Dahlia, Ranunuculus asiaticus 'White', white velarian and parsley.
I like to pack it in. I don't want to see the soil. I've combined the French intensive technique with my passive aggressive algorithm of editing annual seeds and perennial plants. It's a tournament of the flowers; May the best plant win. But of course I stick my nose into the process, limiting those that are too vigorous and making sure there's an even succession of flowers. It's all about the process. I'm in control for a couple hours every Sunday. Then Nature has her way for a week.
