heavy lifting in the potager this weekend! i swapped the larger dwarf alberta spruces for smaller ones in the center. it's been my plan to have the potager accented by smaller conical plants that echo the trellis shape. you can see that i put the larger spruces in brick-colored square (unfortunately plastic) planters at the end of the paths. it will look really cool in the snow, i promise! i also cleaned up a bit. The potager is still producing carrots, beets, kale, beans and herbs. i hope to have sugar snap peas by the end of this month.for miss m, here are the pumpkins and squash i bought at the local fancy nursery. i like the cinderella pumpkin at the bottom and the pink one hiding in the back. i really like them all!
and, after 2 years of searching, i finally found a dwarf picea orientalis that was small enough to be affordable. hey, it may not look like much now, but check back in 10 years!
