Fresh Start

Here's a post I meant to do in the fall but things got busy. But it still works as I like to think about my plans for my plot at the beginning of each year.

All the work in the back corner of the garden inspired me to clear my plot for a fresh start 2014.  For awhile I have been debating taking out a rose bush that tended to grow out of control and extend it's thorns into my neighbors' plots and I decided that this was the year to do it. I also cleared out the dead tomato plants and other compost. In the spring I plan to plant a bit differently than I've done in years past with more veggies and greens. I can't wait!  And of course I plan to give updates in this blog. Here are my before and after pics.

What are your plans for the garden this year?

The Garden in Winter

I'm always amazed by how beautiful our garden is no matter what season. Even in winter with snow piled high, there is so much beauty to find. Here are some recents pictures I took after a recent snow storm.

Shout Out to Those Who Shovel Snow!

Thanks to all the great gardeners who have shoveled snow during this crazy winter. Here's Tim at today's workday making a path through the garden. Shoveling is hard work so I wanted to thank everyone who has helped out!
