I want to make sure that the next owner has a decent start to a plant list. It was fun thinking about all the plants that were a gamble–the ones that paid off and the ones that didn’t. Luckily there are more that fall into the success category.
I also picked a handful of raspberries off the vine this morning. They are heritage raspberries and they were delicious, velvety and sweet.
Like my other Northern Nevada gardening friends, I have found that the tomato business is really odd this year. But there are a decent number we harvested off the vines and enjoyed. The Sprite tomatoes are the winner this year. We also had one really yummy slicing tomato yesterday. It was the real deal.
I loved living in Reno and I loved this yard. It’s really spectacular. I had some visitors to my yard over the weekend and they were awed by the yard. They told me that it was exactly what they hoped their yard would look like some day. I feel lucky to have lived here and enjoyed being the gardener in residence. I hope someone will come along and fall in love with it, just like I did.
