Hydroseed turns Green!

Our new patch of grass looks like a green velvet carpet thanks to plentiful summer rainfall.  We are the do-it-yourself-whenever-possible kind of gardeners and it has taken four years to complete the front yard at the studio/residence.

Last summer Bob designed a system to irrigate pumping directly from the lake, the plants have thrived from the nutrient laden warm water.  Vegetables flourish in fourteen raised beds and we’ve already harvested some lettuce and radishes.

Deep blue violet wild iris adds a dash of color to the back lawn.  This is what summer is all about, I love to garden and am eager to learn.  Tending plants between stints at the easel breaks up my time indoors, stretches stiff muscles and feeds the brain.
