Planting season is in full swing in much of the northern hemisphere! What do you have growing? What's going in soon? Harvesting anything?

How is fall going for anyone in the southern hemisphere? Anyone still harvesting?

Basically, how are your plants?

I tried to plant all native but that fell apart.

I have a native tree sapling growing, the only one I’ve been able to pot that has survived.

A wildflower mix that was said to be for my area has turned out to be only about 40% native. But I am enjoying the fairy flax and bachelors buttons all the same—crazy how cuttings last when they are fresh.

I built a raised bed with old fence posts and board (with liner to keep out ant chemicals, if any are left after 20 years of weathering) and got a chip drop—free mulch, and have lettuce, cucumbers, dill, tomatoes, cilantro growing. I have no idea what I’m doing with veggie and already know I made a mistake with cucumbers—hoping I can train them up an arch away from the others, or perhaps over the lettuce for some shade.

A previous decision to replace lawn with clover is coming to fruition, only to realize this clover is invasive in my area.

I’m not beating myself up, it’s all a learning process!

I was planting clover in my containers as ground cover before I realized it was introduced. I'm going to swap it out with golden beans once they start growing by the side of the road and I can grab cuttings. I had them the first year but for some reason didn't keep them.
