Flowers and Vegetables in a Michigan Garden August 2009 deedsphotos
A Mighigan Flower and Vegetable Garden
This has been a good year in Michigan for flower and vegetable gardens, cool and plenty of rain. Perhaps a bit too cool for tomatoes which were late but well worth waiting for. Here are some pictures taken in late August 2009. Note that vegetables can be mixed in successfully with flowers and shrubs. Some of the vegetables' beauty equals that of flowers. The amount of vegetables that can be grown in a small space is amazing. We've had more than we can eat this summer and passed on plenty to our neighbors.
[The garden is strictly organic--no pesticides or chemical fertilizers--manure, worm castings and our yard mulch only.]
