KathN's Front Yard garden
Garden Type: Vegetable | Sun: Partial Sun | Soil: Combination | Established: 2011 | Organic
This is the only place on our property that gets any measure of “full sun,” and so I co-opted it for the veg garden. This started out being an elaborate “round” divided into quarters … and then a bad batch of soil from a local company turned the whole thing into a wildflower bed. It was enough to put me off veg gardening for the whole next year.
2009 saw me buy four 4×4′ raised beds, though only one of them was planted. I got caught up in deadlines for a book, and the garden suffered.
2011 is the year, though! Fresh, clean dirt from a reputable company, good compost from our bin, a better understanding of weed management, and when/how/what to plant. If I’m really lucky, I’ll be able to put four more triangle boxes in the “corners” for herbs, but I’m happy with what I have so far. It feels good to actually have good dirt, sunshine and a plan!
