What Did You Learn This Year From Your Garden?
Two years ago this question was asked and it made some of reflect on lessons learned, so I thought with COVID and other things going on to see if anyone learned anything new. For me I was laid off in June so I have had the luxury of working in my garden this summer and I took advantage by trying a lot of starting new seeds especially medicinal herbs, some of which did well and others not so much. Now I am learning what to or how to use the new herbs and working on creating new recipes for the produce I grew this year. Some lessons I learned this year, our season in So. Calif have definitely shifted, I still have dragonflies in my yard even though I let the ponds dry out 😊, I had a lot of success moving some of my herbs to a partially shaded part of the yard the most surprising being ginger, I need to keep my greenhouse zipped up at night otherwise creatures will eat the seedlings & seeds (just discovered that😥), that basil can root in water, I learned about a new kinds of mints and one of the biggest things I learned is that I want more land so I can raise chickens!
