I like to make planting areas as diverse as possible and enjoy planting flowers together with my veggies and fruits. This picture shows an early spear of asparagus, a blackberry bush, australian peas, bee balm, and the base of my plum tree in the background. I have also scattered everything from radish seeds to tulip bulbs in this area. The squirels seem to appreciate the tulips and have certainly done their best to keep the soil loose here. I don’t think I will bother with tulips here in the future.
