Having just moved, we did not do a vegetable garden last year. This is the second year in a row that I did not get a garden as I didn't have good gardening space in our rental. I have dabbled somewhat in the flower beds, planted a few herbs, and moved some pots around, but nothing I would call serious gardening. I have missed it so much! There is something in my soul that is touched by gardening in a way that nothing else touches it.
This fall, as a 15 year wedding anniversary gift, Josh built me some beautiful raised beds and has promised to install them wherever I want. I can't wait to start gardening next year!
The plan is to take one of our paddocks, and put the raised beds along the south edge. I will make a general "in ground" garden area in the middle, and then hopefully we will eventually plant things like Kiwi or another vining perenial on the north side fence. Where the chicken coop is now is where I am hoping eventually to have my green house, and in the back we will keep the fire pit with a small green area around it. Josh loves apple trees and we will plant one or two in corners where they won't shade anything we don't want shaded. I am so excited to watch our garden dreams come to life!
