|Just a simple little garden of whimsey|
|The deer had free reign|
|This is the backside after the posts were taken down|
|This is that exact backside now....a garden shed, which will be covered in wood, as part of the wall|
|Looking at this from behind to show the expanse of the fence coming up into the back of the yard off the back porch. This area next to the shed will become the firewood cutting/storing area|
|These are the old posts we used to create our planter boxes....I decided it was easier to use container with the serious issue with gofers. but I really like the look anyway.|
|My big flower box...it's 5x12 foot. |
The compost bin and container is behind
|This is on the opposite side of the garden, which is now a |
36 foot square.
This is the main veggie container and is 3.5 x 24 foot
|I've added birdhouses along the back fence on both sides not only for fun and whimsy, as well as a bird haven....but it adds the height I need to keep the deer from jumping over. |
Loads of obstacles out here in the forest.
Now all we need to do is finish building a couple more containers...there's one behind the open gate that you can't really see that will be for all the lettuce/arugula/spinach etc and herbs. You also can't see the little fairy tale gate I made in this photo...will have to get one soon, I'm very proud of the cute little thing. And this front wall just out of the photo is going to be the home of my greenhouse...yay!! This has been a long arduous journey. Lot's of delays with the weather and such...but coming along now. Will keep you updated as things grow (pun intended).
