Catskill Gardens

With so many obstacles—deer, groundhogs, rabbits, bears, cold long winter, unpredictable weather—gardening in the Catskills is not a piece of cake. But with a little perseverance and patience, the rewards are spectacular!

A plant doesn’t have a voice but what if a bird could sing for it?
Which bird for which plant? Joe Pye Weed & the Cat Bird. When we moved here 23 years ago there was no Joe Pye Weed but plenty of Cat birds. Now the meadow below and the area around the pond is full of the plant. #donstathamblog #totemfarmgarden #catbird #joepyeweed #meadows #catskillgardens #Eutrochiumpurpureum #oneplantonebird #augustgarden
