Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have watered my garden in Cambridge, MA less than a half dozen times this year and it has produced more greens, vegetables, and berries for me than any other year.  I'm a minimalist gardener with soil conditioning consisting of dumping as many bags of Fall leaves on the soil before the recycling truck takes them off the sidewalks.  I promote volunteers and my volunteer strawberry patch made me tired this year while I am learning how to use hyssop from the volunteers left by last year's offering to the bees.  Cukes, green beans, cherry toms are all coming out of my ears.  I have been giving food away to people on the street.

What a gift to have a garden!

Either my Autumn or Winter diaries discuss leaves - the best conditioner in my opinion. Best to avoid Oak or Walnut, though - or so I was told many years ago.

I get very few strawberries, because the Jays and Robins have them spotted before I can get them.
