Honnnneeeey…… I want a garden!!!!
Okay – so it sounds easy, but is it really? At our house, which is on a piece of land at the top of a limestone hill, surrounded by woods from which vegetable and herb munching critters emerge, maybe not so much.
Here’s what we need to do in order to create my garden.
-Spray Crossbow to get rid of blackberry bramble
-Clear said bramble
-Put down weed barrier
-Import dirt. Spread it.
-Build a raised bed.
-Import mulch. Spread it in raised bed.
-Import trellises for my favorite plants (sweet peas).
-Buy vegetable, herb and sweet pea seeds. Plant them.
-Build a “cage” around the garden to keep out dogs, birds, critters, DEER.
*Whew*. So you see why I need Jim. Much easier with his involvement. He’s ignoring me, though. I think he knows what he’s in for. What? Lots of work, followed by a summer of eating vegetables (which he hates). Not much motivation there.
Still – I have the spot picked out. It is sunny and within easy reach of the garden hose. It is flat. And, if we build a “cage” around the garden, it will not only keep critters out – but we could use it to keep kids in when they get out of hand. I’m kidding. I wouldn’t cage my kids. (I don’t think).
I have a vision of working my garden, harvesting my plants and smelling my sweet peas. But first, there is hard work. And only about two weeks to do it before a garden isn’t viable this summer. Maybe next year.
