Today the post is supposed to be vibrant colors so I hope this photo will suffice. For a couple of years I’ve wanted to plant a mixture of seeds in my yard and this past spring I took the rotor-tiller and made the area. I sowed wild seed mixed with annuals and the result is above. I called it my meadow. I was able to enjoy the brilliant flowers for the whole spring and in to late summer. Yes, of course I collected seed. Now I can repeat the process but of course not in the same spot (the soil needs to rest.) In the fall I harvested seeds then pulled weeds and grass, used the rotor-tiller with full intentions of spreading compost and giving this area a break. The rain came for several days and when I was able to get back out I found new seedlings peeping out of the ground. Needless to say I did not disturb them and soon had a new meadow which I enjoyed until almost Christmas. The soil is now resting and come spring I will plant my meadow in a new place.
