We're expanding the larger garden this season,
cutting down some of the trees on our five
acres that are blocking the sun on the
North Eastern side of the house.
The hubby will keep the good wood for use
next winter or for a fire or two in
the burn pit in our court yard as neighbors
gather round with drinks and snacks.
We inherited (at least temporarily) some lawn furniture
when my brother-sister in-law moved onto their yacht.
We're debating the color since we do need give them another coat.
I say either keep them white or something that will blend
into the woods since this is by the garden.
My husband insists on John Deere Green!
It's hard to get a good view but this is where
our garden sits. The greenhouse will be used
for the first time this year. I've got a wooden table
to set things on as we're working and then
boxes framed with tree trunks for various plantings.
Herbs and tomatillos in the first bed along with peppers.
Zinnias and onions below this bed.
We had cukes,tomatoes and squash varieties in the second bed.
Pumpkins, peas, and more squash at the bottom bed
Beans at the top.
There is a third bed that was unused last year
but will be dedicated to squash this season.
Supposedly, since it has not mulch, we will get fewer bugs.
We have a small Western side garden for greens
radish and the potato box.
I have plans for lots more herbs !
Culinary and Medicinal.
This isn't my view but it's my brother-sister in-law's lot
which is next to ours. Of course this is ground level
but when you're in a house like ours,
two stories with an actual attic
the view goes on forever!
This is looking from the Eastern garden area
towards our place.
Don't look too close, it's messy right now!
My little Western side garden radish seeds are coming up.
These are the ones I planted before the deluge of rain
where they went floating down, down, down
and will probably puddle up at the end of the planter box!
I will have to replant .
Tomorrow the hubby tows away tree limbs and
cut up trunks and prepares the lower area for
our utility trailer which will hold our gardening
items. He will also build some more structures for holding the wood.
I have jury duty starting tomorrow.
When I get home I have to log into work and handle anything
that can't wait so I don't know if I'll have time to post but
I'll catch up over the weekend!
