I have a garden at home which emphasizes native plants. Not only do I enjoy a beautiful place to relax and enjoy nature, but I get some lovely visitors paying visits too! The lower picture is the Toad Motel in my potato patch. "Toady" shelters in a terracotta plant pot placed in a shady spot with an en suite water station . Toady eats insects and keeps me company as I work.
August arrives and the garden is looking wonderful. Members have been hard at work maintaining their personal plots and contributing to our collective plot. Due to COVID19, we will not be donating fresh food this year😥, however, we will share amongst our family and friends. My personal plot is heavy on potatoes, chosen for their forgiving and robust nature. Last year the land was claimed from animal pastures. Next year I am hoping that weeds will be less numerous and easier to control.
