I just discovered this video of my friend Connie, thanks to Mark at the Marion County UF Extension office:
Concerted effort over time leads to beautiful results.
Now imagine if she’d planted edibles a couple of decades ago! Chestnuts, pecans, plums, apples, pears. That would be both beautiful and productive.
Regardless, I love her gardens, and Connie is a wealth of information. I bought multiple birdhouses from her as well as pollinator plants back before I left the states. We used to both have booths at the same Farmer’s Market off 326 in Ocala.
Glad to see her still gardening.
