    The tomatoes are a heritage cherry – I’ll find out which variety when I go up to the nursery next, mixed colours of antique Lilac (parents range from pure white, through various shades of mauve) and the mint is Chocolate. There were also (from last year’s seedlings): one “Dragon’s Blood” Sedum baby, one (light coloured) Columbine, plus, can’t remember which, but in one of the pots, a couple of hitch-hiking Lemon Balm seedlings from this year.

    What do you use the Virginia Creeper and Creeping Charley for? I have both plants and know they have obscure medicinal qualities but am curious about how you use them in your system. Thanks in advance if you have a moment to respond.

    • Creeping charley works well as a choking out ground cover but one that is super easy to pull out and be replanted out in..

      The Virginia creeper is not good for anything that I know of, other then to climb, shade cover and look pretty.. I guess if you wanted to drive someone crazy with a rash for some reason, you could put the active sap on things and make them really really regret having touched that 🙂
