We've been busy buying up all the plants that were being clearanced at some of the local nurseries. At least it feels like we have bought them all. I have been digging holes for days and days. But it is a great time of year to buy if your budget is small and you aren't too picky about the varieties you get!
To keep everyone abreast on what is growing here at Soggy Hollow House project, I created a customized google map with everything we have planted so far. This will be continually updated, and will have a permanent home on the master plan page of this website when we get it set up, but for now, I am debuting it here in a blurb.
The map below provides an interactive guide with all of our more permanent plantings. Click on the menu or on the individual icons, and an informational window will pop up showing the name of the plant, a photo of the species, and a link to a website where you can learn more about the particular plant. Included are perennials, fruit trees, vines and flowering shrubs (bee food). We will continuously update as our food forest (and landscape) grows! Switching out of satellite mode on the map will allow you to zoom in closer, but it then loses the landmarks.
Maybe if I get really ambitious I can do something like this with our vegetable garden next year!
Thanks for reading!
P.S. Google needs to come take a new aerial. Apparently the previous tenants owned a lot of black cars.
