Like all things in the world the garden creeps towards entropy without diligent effort.
After many years of only needing a bit of cleanup, the raised vegetable beds need maintenance.
- Replace soil in most beds to remove powdery mildew spores
- Repair irrigation chewed by varmints
- Paint fence
- Replenish mulch
But this year I would also like to expand the garden to include the area behind the flower bed. At one point I thought having only a large water trough would be enough. But I’m thinking this would be better used to create some much needed privacy lost on the south side of the yard.
- Remove peach tree
- Move trough to south side
- Layout new raised beds
- New fence
This will take a few weekends and labor I will most likely need to hire out. The time of post hole digging may be gone for this back. Getting they layout first will ensure I the many trips for materials are lessened.
So time to get outside! But not this weekend, its cold out there baby!
