potager - meadow

mrtoad(7b NC)August 31, 2013

i planted a "meadow" in one of the potager boxes - no time for gardening this spring - photos are a few of the flowers - worked well - used flowers as cut flowers for table - many bees, butterflies and humming birds

probably will not do again - only because - back to veggies - -

i think flowers are a "necessary" addition to the potager

here is a photo - a few years ago - now undergoing a complete renovation
