This summer I entered the garden into the Gardenista Considered Design Awards competition. It was a spur of the moment decision, having only noticed it a few days before the close of entry. I asked My Nice Man what he thought, wondering if my newly-built and just-planted garden would just not be established enough. “Why not?” He said. So I did.
I called my garden “The 12 Week Garden”, and it ended up getting selected (out of over 800 overall entries) as one of five finalists for the Edible Garden category. Amateur individuals and professional landscape companies were lumped together in this category.
Then it went to public vote to decide the winners, ending in a tie win awarded to both myself and a Californian landscape design company.
