The John Jevon’s Way

Master gardener, John Jevons, once had a demonstration garden here in Willits. He is know world wide for his gardening techniques and wisdoms.

On the left is a picture of John in the garden and on the right  is  a picture of tree kale. A friend of mine gave me a few starts so that I can grow my on tree kale. He says that you can’t find seeds for this plant.  I dutifully planted my starts today, as well as more lettuce. Alex has built two raised beds for the vegetable garden this summer, and we plan to plant several grapes, fruit trees and other edibles. I have a few climbing roses to plant too.
