Congratulations to Jane Marthaler of Gregory, November’s Garden winner of the month. This mature garden has a nice combination of flowers and vegetables. In the right corner, it appears that the nasturtiums are climbing the sunflowers. These colorful flowers, often served in salads or used to decorate cakes, are edible. Bright orange marigolds surround the garden to detour small animals and insects. This mix of flowers and vegetables are lovely against a backdrop of mature trees and cute red buildings.
This Garden Contest runs from May 2020 through March 2021. A garden will be chosen and shared each month. In March 2021, readers will vote for their favorite garden. Next year’s winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Tulip Tree Gardens funded by Dorothy Craft’s Sewing and Alterations and Tulip Tree Gardens. To enter a garden, send up to five photos by the 15th of each month. Email photos to StockbridgeCommunityNews@gmail.com and use “Gardens” as the subject. Include your name, physical address of the garden and a phone number.
