In spite of the coolest May in many many years, and plants languishing instead of exploding, plants in the Hugel mound are doing better than those in my main garden. I transplanted some English daisies that survived the winter outside, some Marigolds I started from seeds while we were in Florida, and some Lemon balm along the south edge of the mound. I try to plant flowers to encourage bees, and the Marigolds tend to also ward off pests.

We have some sun and warm weather coming in the next week, so next month's update should be better.
