I started a new garden on the ruins of my former vegetable plot. When I started gardening several years ago, I designated the strip of land between my neighbor’s house and my home, the perfect place for a vegetable/herb winter garden. This area received several hours of sun during winter and it was out of sight. The first few years produced plentiful harvest and based on that success, I decided to expand it. I added building blocks, soil and added more vegetables and herbs. The first two years produced mix results. I couldn’t understand why, until one day when I realized that all the fruit trees that I had planted in my backyard had grown and were blocking the winter morning sun, this area of the garden was only getting a couple of hours of late afternoon sun.
Two years ago, I moved the garden to containers next to the kitchen and the old vegetable garden became a dumping ground for unwanted plants. Today some of those plants have grown and it was time for a redo.
The squares in the building blocks are perfect to plant bromeliads
Once a year, late in the summer, this white orchid put on a show
