New Paltz, NY
A writer once proclaimed my garden to be very much a "man's garden"; perhaps it is. The emphasis is on fruits and vegetables, but the whole works, as they are woven into plantings of flowers and ornamental shrubs. I try to grow a year-round supply of pretty much every kind of vegetable except rhubarb, parsnips, and Jerusalem artichokes. Fruits include many varieties of dwarf apples and pears, grapes, and numerous uncommon fruits such as pawpaws, persimmons, gooseberries (twenty or so varieties), currants, and medlars. Out in the adjoining hayfield is a 100-foot trellis of hardy kiwis and a swale bordered by chestnut and hazelnut trees.
The host requires that masks be worn by all guests in the garden. Thank you for your cooperation.
