It took longer than I hoped to post about our completed L-Shape garden, that I originally posted about here , we completed the garden and have it planted, it was actually a fairly quick project. Here is the before picture again:
We decided to move all of the garden but not the little square strawberry patch that you see on the right side of the picture. I did not want to risk losing a strawberry crop this year, so we will move them in the fall.
Here is what is in the space that WAS the garden:
I just love this new space, I can see the kids in the backyard, on the trampoline, and in the sand box. The limestone rocks we retrieved from an empty excavated area in our development. The tree was the largest investment..about $147, we transplanted some purple coneflowers from another flower bed, I had no idea how much these flowers multiplied. The lilacs on each end we purchased for $19.99 a piece they will be
white. I can’t wait until next spring to cut some blooms and bring them in the house….mmmm lilacs smell the best!
Here is the new L-Shpae garden that we originally posted about here:
We have romaine lettuce, onions (red and white), cucumbers, peas, and sweet potatoes in a bucket. WE also moved the compost bin to the corner of the garden, we had it on the side of the house but it was not getting enough sun to “cook” properly. Plus now we can just spread the ready compost into the garden.
So glad we decided not to move the strawberries, I can’t wait untill all these ripen!!
