sedums were still blooming last week, hardy and beautiful plants, weird architecture, a rooming house for ladybugs, fungus gnats.
it's cold as (-20F, snow, a polar vortex).
it took probably 20-25 hours of labour, got a quarter bucket. at a low minimum wage, it's $200/pound. the final sprouts were the cutest.
so, opted for a kilo of mung beans at store: $15. it snowed and melted twice. deep leaves, ladybugs burrowing all over. a new moon.
coulda planted earlier (was mid-july). woulda got more potatoes. shoulda put it in more sun (just 2-4 hours a day). the soil was so-so. shoulda not covered plant when condo-ing... maybe next year.
also, difficult: the vertical garden w/ pallet.
thinkin' about phenology wheels and plant families. garden hardiness zone 4a/3.
