Nenita Franck follows the beat of her own drum when it comes to planting her garden.
"Here are a few more pictures of my garden on the Central Oregon Coast. I'm still gardening "my way" and planting whatever I can. It's now plant packed all around the house on 1/3 acre but I continue to plant, propagate, and rescue plants. My paths just gets narrower to make more room for the plants. I'm still partial to blooms and look for blooming trees, perennials, annuals, and bulbs. My garden is mostly hillside so I tend to plant hardwood cuttings straight into the ground. Digging is so difficult even with soccer shoes on. I haven't been able to amend the soil nor apply fertilizers so I'm grateful for "how my garden grows." I've had fair weather with lots of shade, some sun, mild temps, and lots of wind."
