Of course it looks pretty unnatural right now, with the limestone pavers I plan to use on the grass side dotted along the fabric to hold it down, and the grass pushing against the fabric staples like sofa cushions..
Broccoli, Romaine lettuce and brussels sprouts (I cheated and found some 9-packs of seedlings at Home Depot while buying pavers!).
Other happy plants in the yard:
The ice plant up front was bursting with blooms this morning
The Black dalea transplant is blooming already
Wild Italian arugula gone wild- no watering, vigorous regular trimming and it just gets bigger..
Another volunteer pumpkin- I'll see if it produces anything..
