Ready to see my snowy, messy.. what the heck happened last year to my gardens, walk about.. I could not even get into my main garden yet.. so you will get those first photos in may..
So here it is.. in the raw.. there is a part of me that really does not want to show you these photos.. I want to wait till they have been cleaned up, till I have pretty plants started or pops of color.. Anything really beyond showing this April spring muck and mud..
However I want to do a walk about photo series all season long on the same date each month.. maybe even weekly or bi-weekly in the real push garden season to show just how much of a change it goes though.
So for all you neat gardeners.. look away.. look away now LOL
This area is the bale garden, compost pile mound gardens and if you want to look closer, you can see the new line of big cedar fence posts that went in last year and will be newly fenced this year.. I have tree’s that need to come down this year..
I know, you can’t even see things here yet but on the far left is the sunchokes patch, in the middle is two big three foot garden rows, at the back is black choke berry and more fruiting interplanting planned in there this year and that post.. it will play host to a mason bee house, facing the sun.
This is Bean Teepee #1 as more are planned this spring, along with Sofie kitty and Leeloo kitty who had to come on my walk with me.. It needs a good clean up and the 3 foot bed around it as well. It at least is melting out faster then other areas
While its starting to thin out in places in the drifted area’s the snow is still knee deep, so I will take more detailed photos in there in may for you.. but there is the garden beds, the hedge rows and much more back there.. Right now.. lets to put it as its big, its got lots of things being planted in there and its still very much pretty much under snow cover yet.
This is the view into the big new rebuild area of the front yard, it does not show the side part.. but I will get that in may, as I will with the other back gardens, including the gooseberry’s and the raspberry etc.
This one is a shot from the middle of the rebuild area showing a more direct line to the pond to be and beyond hat a rain garden to be.. plus the “big tree” where we will add in the picnic table for shade in the yard in the afternoon.
This is my poor cleared front yard area and now that I have figured out what will happen with it, I am so excited.. this area will become my kitchen garden with a intermix of flowers and walk away.. Its going to be both pretty and ever so useful!
This is the front bed, while it needs a spring clean, it is in fact filled with a great number of come back plants but there is plans on expanding it this year as well.. more on that soon.. I have had it with mowing that little patch.. time to turn it into garden space.. or at least herb growing space.
Well that is what you are getting for April.. I will expand in may once I can freely walk into the areas.. Hope you enjoyed seeing my crazy yard/gardens lol
