These can be found seasonally in my garden's greenhouse and small hoop house.
Green and a few purple fruits graced tangled up the greenhouse with 8' vines spreading everywhere. Salse verde madness.
3rd generation of this winter hardy semi-spicy, always nutritious salad green. Minerals!
Honey bee gets the good small stuff from thyme flowers. Overuse of pesticides is causing colony collapse and therefore threatens our food supply.
This catnip is in its second year. Its first year was spent as a weak clumps of disorganized stems. This incarnation is showing remarkable symmetry. It end its season at 53" tall, and 24" diameter
Toads are the sign of an organic farm. So are the bindweeds pictured with the strawberries. Toads will be the first victims of any pesticide/herbicide use.
Latin for "always alive", these winter hardy semps actually grow under the snow which provides them with their perfect climate: bright, diffuse light, near-freezing temps and high humidity.
Self-seeding annual or perennial, this Osterospermum can't seem to make up its mind. Grown from seed, this 4 year old is showing confidence in its place in the garden.
Eriogonum is a member of the Buckwheat family. The very soft tender leaves are super smooth and robust. Winter hardy and needing little attention.
Ice, baby, ice!
And some hot pink Dianthus to chill the purple and yellow ice plant. Delosperma nubigenum is the yellow flower, compact form that spreads out quickly.
Linum lewisii from seed from Stock Seed Farms. In their 3rd year, these xeric plant tower 24" up and above. Water them daily for a constant display of beautiful, light blue flowers.
