Mulched Perennials

August 20, 2004

Two photo samples, dated to late August 2004:

(1) what we see here is overgrown lawn grass and hay-bale mulch (pasture grasses) with a couple of bronze fennel plants visible and a couple of lemon balm plants and other herbs visible. There are likely seedling trees and shrubs dwarfed by the herbatious plants in this picture;

(2) apple tree with egyptian onions and dill planted understory in hay mulch. This is the apple tree closest to the street, to put it in perspective. To the far left is an encroaching fast-growning Black Locust tree — several were planted and they were removed after a few years when they got 15′ tall — they were intended as a legume to supply nitrogen to surrounding plants.
