The past 3 years I have been concentrating my gardening efforts on our place down south and this year I am doing a reverse! We have cleared a rather large area in our yard up north and have decided to do a really spectacular garden. Although I have some gardening knowledge this large space is intimidating! There is nothing there and I plan to make it pretty … yikes!
This is our back yard and the area with black dirt is our new garden! That is alot of black dirt!
Another angle ….. of ALOT of black dirt!
And still another view of the area
Frankie is quite content watching as we line the area with brick to keep the soil from running off in heavy rains. Some days I really wish my dogs, of which we have four, could pitch in and help a little with some of this work.
Next step is framing the area with plastic lattice to keep the bunnies out … the squirrels will climb over so I need to keep an eye out for them. One year they had a real feast on all my miniature blue corn I had growing when we were gone for a weekend.
This is an additional area on the side of the house that I plan to clean up and add flowers or it may be the herb garden.
It looks like I have my work cut out for me ….. maybe the dogs will have a change of heart and decide to help out.
Follow along as I create my Dream Garden!
