Dragon Garden

Although we don’t grow dragons in the garden, the 5-feet tall dragon in the center of this garden makes it easy to understand why we call this the Dragon Garden.  We put the dragon in the garden so that he could guard over the blackberries, blueberries, and flowers and scare away the critters and diseases.  Frankly, he doesn’t do a good job, as evidenced by the rabbit eating the sweet potatoes we planted at his feet.  We decided to keep the dragon anyway.  


The biggest pest we have ever found in this garden was a 200-pound sow hog which had escaped from a neighboring farm.  Fortunately, Peter revealed his hidden talent as a “Pig Whisperer” and convinced the sow to move on down the road without damaging the blueberries and blackberries.


Initially this whole plateau was filled with blueberry bushes, but the bushes in the middle just languished.  We suspected that the soil had been contaminated by the road grading equipment that had been parked here, so we dug out the dirt, built raised beds, brought in fresh soil, and planted daylilies, which seem to be thriving.  


This is the end of the garden tour.  We hope you enjoyed the garden and thank you for visiting.  If you have any questions, just let us know.
