I really want a nice garden and yard this year. I went out and took "before" pictures today of all the places I want to put plants and stuff...
I want to take out this rose and just have mulch in this place. The containers will go in the back yard with lavender and some sort of herbs.
This is the southeastern most point in my garden so I'd like to plant tomatoes here. Again, the strawberries in the containers will go in the back yard.
Here I just want to plant some cute annuals. Some are already coming up and wintered surprisingly well. It's under the apple tree so we'll probably put mulch with the new flowers.
It's President's Day weekend! That means it's time to cut back the roses. Phil's cutting back the roses today! It's a beautiful day for pruning! It's hard to tell where the roses are, but there is a row right along the driveway.
The back yard needs a lot of work. Here's where I want to do some cucumbers.
Here's where the mint and strawberries will battle it out. Last year I planted mint and strawberries here. I guess they grow like weeds and are pretty invasive so either I can try to get rid of them and plant them in containers or I can give in to them. It's a tough call. If I don't just tend to the weeds, and I decide to pull the mint and strawberries, here's where some pretty flowers will go.
Here's where my spiral herb garden is going to go. Wow, there's a lot of work that we need to do in the yard.
I'm going to plant rosemary, calendula, lavender, and many more edibles! The great thing about a spiral herb garden is that you can have a variety of herbs that perfer different types of soil and shade/sun.
The last thing I want to do is a blueberry garden...
I have my work cut out for me this Spring. I'll begin with soil prep of the cucumber garden...
