This summer, I planted a new garden in the front of the house consisting of mostly edible plants. Plant placement in this garden is fun and colorful, dramatic and welcoming. While the garden has been productive, I've been excited by the design possibilities and have been formulating a list of new exotic edibles to try next year. I'm looking for the WOW factor! I've enjoyed watching this garden develop and have been slow to remove plants or cross them off the list for next year. I'm excited to see where this garden takes me as a gardener.
|My backyard garden is now half empty with only fall and winter crops remaining.|
|As I'm clearing out the beds I'm adding compost, then I'll be covering the beds with mulch to protect the top soil over the winter.|
I guess these gardens fire different sides of my brain - creative and analytical, because I find them equally rewarding and satisfying!
