Beginning to realize I had too much time to dream of my spring garden this winter

Wednesday, 30 May 12 Cloudy 15°C / 59°F

Yes I was ambitious. While most things are going well the cool damp spring makes very thing slow to grow. This yrs green peas are scant. The snow peas did okay I hear other folks peas are not good either. The February planting was best the march and April plantings are sad still. I have enough to replant one more time in June.

I also realized When the current raised beds decay I need to change layout to accommodate wider paths for wheelbarrows and a hot and or cold frame. Paths aren1 2-3 ft wide thinking in circles for next layout but not sure how to do raised beds this way. Cob? Contemplating a more pleasing ca re free design.

Have several big projects underway, ie privacy fence landscaping in front of fence, Painting house and cleaning conditioning and painting deck. All to be completed by end of fall.

No grass this year is a relief. Weeds are under control except for pathways where I removed straw. That really worked best so far. I have started laying fabric butit is so ugly. Maybe a deck with raised beds H ha
