Not much interest in gardening with edibles, apparently -or at least, a less-than-ideal season for the topic – so a brief final post for this month’s Design Workshop. Thanks to those who were able to share links, and to those who’ve been reading them. Maybe we’ll try this topic again during the next growing season!
