My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
THE LAST GARDENING OF THE YEAR 2017 (今年最後の庭仕事)
It will rain tomorrow, and we did the last gardening of this year.
Asparagus has become yellowish, and I cut it.
Two raised beds were mulched with home-made mature compost.
The leaves of asparagus were heaped in the compost bin.
