Needless to say, I am very happy my Nadia finally arrived. This was a great birthday present from my father. There are three lavender plants under the tree, but today I planted about ten more. The strings are tied down with bricks and large stones, which I covered with soil. Nothing is more unsightly than string tied to bricks structuring branches. I hope the lavender will detract from that. Hopefully the string will only be here a year or so.

White potatoes are planted. We are having three batches this season. 
1 french fingerling
2 red potato
3 white potato

I also planted some gladiolus plants around the potatoe garden so it wouldn't look do ugly Potato patches are not the most attractive thing to look at.
Potato patches are not the most attractive part of a garden, so I planted a line of gladiolus in the front blocking the view to some degree.
