Garden on day of summer solstice, with the same things, but some seeds harvested, and no new plantings.
It is easy to keep this garden weeded, because the weeds simply do not grow in it very fast. Therefore what was and is growing in it is quite hardy.
AND, the lead free “soil” that we got last year must not have been very good. It was a mix of tree shreddings and sand, according to the business that dug the garden and delivered the soil.
Perhaps the lincreasing shade did not help either, but weeds grow well in greater shade.
Soil building has come to the top of my garden to-do list.
There were blossoms on this lemon tree.
There is no set fruit on this lemon tree. I think it is because snails ate mini fruits, unless there were no bees in the front. I saw snails, and have not recently seen bees. It could have been another problem, so while I work to reduce the snail population, I will keep my eyes open.
It seems that possums learn from experience. They did not come to this trap for the next several settings, two even in another location. I even used cat food, and caught nothing but two cats, at two different times, each of which I quickly released. I may move it to the first location if the city leaves it long enough.
