The Year of Many Garden Projects

Pictures to come in future posts.

Of our garden projects we have completed our small water garden. It now contains several small hardy plants, 4 small fish, and a floating solar fountain.

We have also:

  • completed our rock garden
  • completed two thirds of our retaining wall around our driveway
  • removed the grass & weeds from 20 feet of our 4' wide side strip of side yard
  • planted about 40 perennials
  • added compost and manure to our vegetable and perennial beds
  • reseeded lawn that needed it
  • installed a wood stove on our patio
  • planted two different types of peas
  • planted two different types of carrots
  • planted beets
  • removed blossoms from 1st year daughter strawberry plants
  • installed a rock path through our large garden bed
  • transplanted and removed day lillies we didn't want
  • planted pampas grass where the day lillies were
We still need to:
  • build our square foot beds. They are now two 4 x 4 foot beds.
  • plant out the side yard with ground covers
  • plant the rest of our vegetables
  • plant annual flowers
  • install a brick wall around the water garden
  • finish painting the *&$#%ing porch
  • re-set our post for our clothesline
  • possibly install a bog garden next to the water garden
  • Mulch, mulch, mulch!
I bet there's more! We definitely have our work cut out for us. I will begin sharing pictures of the projects we have completed.

Cheers!
