Finally relaxing after a long day in the field behind our property, getting it ready for next spring. I’ve been ripping out as much Bermuda grass as its roots will yield, tilling the soil a bit, and planting winter rye seed for a cover crop, to help build the soil and smother weeds. The rye should grow to about 4 or 5 feet tall, then in spring I’ll cut it down and let it lay as mulch and transplant into it. So, nothing to show just yet for all the work I’ve been doing, but soon enough.
In the meantime, my mom emailed me this photo she took of a Camellia in her garden. It’s an Ackerman hybrid, very cold hardy, called “Winter’s Joy” I believe.
