The Garden Project
When we first moved into this house, there was a grove of shimmering aspens in the very back part of the property. As beautiful as they are, especially when they shimmer in the wind, they are self propagating, and really, the property is just not that big.
Most importantly, we wanted fruit trees. We wanted our land to provide us with as much food as possible.
We have been working hard this spring to get the “back forty” of our property ready for planting. This part fell prey to our procrastination over the last few years. I could claim that was a good thing, since I changed my mind at the end of last summer about what I wanted to do with the space.
Last summer, I realized how much sun that space gets throughout the day. I decided it was the perfect place to put the other garden. So, yesterday, after five days (spread over a little over a month) of fighting monster weeds and digging up eleven tree trunks, we finished.
Next we till it. Then we plant.
And somewhere in there, we deer-proof it.
Oh, we do have big plans for this space!
