this year new garden. Still new because it's 2-nd year perniculture - aka natural garden. In Japaneze gardening culture this soil is considered immature, so I still tooka risk with peppers and watermelons. Cucumbeer this year I did from seed and we had good bit of rain and chills, so they did not germinate yet and tomatoes are still sitting there doing close to nothing (meaning developing root because I did dig them up to top 2 leaves) and will be late like last year. So I hope that early frosts will not hit. But we did have late frost this year an late may snow so... We just go year by year, and I did not doo hoop houses to get around that,,,
these is my lupin from seed. nitrogen fixer
