What’s happening on Mist Mountain?  A Walk Around in April, a very unpredictable month.

n with words

Nasturtium are an easy-to-grow annual whose leaves and flowers are edible.  They also are very colorful.  They, to me, are in between a marigold and a petunia.  April is a little too soon to plant them.  The “rule of thumb” in this area is to plant most of your annuals after Mother’s Day for the best results.  Many times on the mountain it is more like Father’s Day.


This picture is from the now free to use online digital collections at the New York Public Library.  There are extraordinary photos and drawings at this sight.
