What a little oasis of life. Onions and garlic are the root crops here. They will help keep certain insect pests away. Strawberries and red clover are the ground cover. The clover adds nitrogen to the soil and the strawberries act as a trap crop for some very destructive little moths. Oats and wheat were sown as a cover crop, to be knocked down later to enrich the soil. Mums and bee balm are also a part of the herbacious layer and will help to attract beneficial insects, as will the “Blue Girl” rose bush. There is some russian sage I was given thrown into thr group as well. I also have scattered wild flower seeds here. I can’t wait to see what all comes up as the season progresses 🙂


Any Thoughts?
