It’s been a little while, eh?
Apologies for that. Lengthy work hours eat up the few hours of daylight this time of year. I cannot imagine managing with the even shorter days farther north.
Lack of daylight leads to lack of photos.
There hasn’t been a lack of life sprouting up and work to be done, though.
I’m still catching up on the picture-taking, but did manage a few shots when the sun was still up.

Of course, one must work in soil supplements most times. For powders, I like using a rake.
This is my first time using rock phosphate. I’m hoping it helps. My soil tends toward too much nitrogen (user error through trial and error) and alkaline pH. I haven’t found a supplement that added enough of the others to get my little $3 Burpee Soil Test Kit even into the mid-range. Fingers crossed that this does that trick. I picked it up for a reasonable price at The Natural Gardener.

The Blanket Flowers in the rear side patch have been trying with all their might to push a bloom (or two!) to the tops of their stalks. They have succeeded.
And finally, I’ll leave you with a peak at a secret! I cannot wait for it to enlarge into something for dinner!
This one’s called Amazing Cauliflower.
