Or, as I like to put it, The Art of Gardners Through the Ages (art school joke…)
Month: January 2017
The weather has been above freezing for several days so I thought I’d go out to the land to check up on things. These willow trees were planted earlier this year. This is down in the low spot by the creek. There’s an area of about 2 acres that gets real wet in the winter and stays that way through most of the summer.
I was thinking willows would be happy with all the water and maybe they’ll even help to dry things up a bit. So far we’ve planted about 100 willows down here and another 60 or so up by the vegetable gardens on line 10. The ones up there are more shrubby and selected because they are popular among basket weavers and other artists using natural materials. I hop to be a supplier of such things some day.
