New Bed Update
I can't believe sometimes that this all just had it's beginnings last spring! It's filling in so fast and now I'm planning on getting down to getting new beds and extensions started now that the planting out is pretty much over :)
Oh and just as a side note.....I have been working on ID'ing some fruiting shrubs that run the length of the property/tree line. I've a ton and I mean TON of native to Idaho Serviceberries!! They are so yummy and sweet, can't wait to for later this year! In the early spring the pretty flowers look like an explosion of white. Beautiful :)
Self planted Oxeye Daisy and Purple Hyacinth Bean. These daisies are like dandelions and cover ground in a hurry, but since I didn't get my Shasta Daisy to germinate last year, I just thought I'd let these fill in for now! Gotta say though these look much better in the bed than they do in the pastures/roadsides. I'll assume it's less competition and better soil. In the field they new get more than 6 or so flowering stems and a relatively short. Mine are nearing 2.5' and nice nice mounds. Deer, Elk and Horses leave it alone btw.
German Catchfly and Blue Flax
Coreopsis lanceolata is about ready to start bloom as is the Black Prince Snapdragons. This is the Snaps 2nd year and looking really nice :)
The west side of this bed. The Hyacinth bean is up against the half-logs and then there are Homemade Pickle Cucumbers around the tipi. I also planted out Cleome seedlings in here
Happy Growing :)
