Preparing The Garden Area For Next Spring
First I`d like to say thank you for all the good wishes for our little trip. It really was a fun time.
Last week I went out back and added more garbage bags to the area to kill the grass. It looks terrible right now but I can envision how it could look with curved edges and the garden wider, beginning by the trellis instead of how it looks now to even it out to the eye. We`re going to extend the brick patio out around the raised vegetable garden, having the widest part coming from the little pathway out of the walled garden area. My brother still has about 200 more bricks and with those plus more loose ones we can gather, there should be enough to finish it.
I think I`d like to try making a potager type garden, having both vegetables and flowers here. Then on the extra patio part, place potted veg and flowers around with some herbs. Along the fence I`ve thought of planting some climbing things, maybe a rose or two, Clematis, Climbing Hydrangea and some vines to take away the rustic look in that spot a little.
This is just a picture I found from a gardening info site, but it looks so cozy...
