Pollinator Garden

June 19, 2015

I planted a pollinator garden this spring and it's doing okay. It's weedy, but flowers are starting to peek through and bloom. By leaving the back half of my garden to the bees and butterflies, I have enough time to weed the vegetables in the front half. Here are some photos.

These milkweed come up every year. I used to pull them out as weeds. Now I watch the monarch butterflies feed on the blooms.

The front of my garden. It's been a great year for potatoes and onions.

Bob staked the tomatoes this year.

My ditch lilies are blooming. They don't attract pollinators, but they are cheerful.
