Making my beds...


Since I moved into this house late in the year and things were all chaos I am just designing and laying out my garden now. For the first time in my life, I am trying to design my garden first and not just be inspired by what I come by on the cheap. This is hard for me, because I am Little Miss What-I-Came-by-on-the-Cheap. I'm making a plan and I'm going to try and stick with it.

Anyway, I'm starting a border garden and instead of just sticking stuff here and there, I'm starting at the "beginning" and working my way through. I think I am only testing my ability to do all this, right now it's just a theory... So I started at the gate and put down thick contractors' trash bags held down by a series of bricks and timber pieces. In a few weeks the "turf" below will be dead and I'll get to planting. I have AMAZING soil so I won't have to work much at it, that's the good news...




p.s. isn't my dog awesome?
