    I am a northern gardener with an unpredictable climate.
    I grow flowers, vegetables and fruits. But I'm always learning new things, so I'm here. I really appreciate the experience of other gardeners and positive communication. :)

    Bonjour, Laly! I do a lot of flower planting. This includes perennials and annuals.

    Thank you all for the kind welcome! :)
    Of course, the garden season is already ending here.
    But the summer was good. I have reaped a good harvest and am already finishing canning.
    I cleaned the greenhouses and sowed mustard ( Sinapis) for green fertilizer the following year.

    In fact, I work a lot, so I am a “weekend gardener”. I live in the city and come to my country house, like many people here. And I do not have time to do a lot. The grass grows faster than I can cut it.
    Therefore, I am looking for any ideas to make it simple.
    For example, I plant potatoes in hay.

    I try to plant more annual flowers with the inscription on the packaging "growing independently."

    But I love my garden, This is my relax.:heart:

    In addition, I have a lot of home flowering plants. I have already planted bulbs of hyacinths, tulips and crocuses for winter flowering. Well, I'm a fan of plants. :D

    Some photos of this summer.

    I'm impressed Laly!! You seem to have everything under control even with the time restrictions. I hope your grass is like ours and won't need to be cut until March which should give you more time to 'play' in your garden.

    Yes, I will use a lawnmower in May in my climate. But in May, birds make nests in currant bushes. Therefore, I am waiting. They must raise nestlings and leave the nest. :)

    :hi: @Laly what a fantastic selection you have :like: and it's nice to see the out come after grafting hard and enjoying it at the same time...I don't grow things but it's always nice to see the produce of other members.

    I don't know if this link will be of any use to you regarding trying other methods of growing potatoes.

    Thank, @Gail-Steman ! :D
    Of course, I have a more modest garden and I think about planting potatoes in bag too, but I have a few garden tools from our gardeners who really make gardening easier. :)
