Garden journal entry


May 30, 2011. Usually I get a few garden projects done in early spring (looking back at last year, for example, I created the curve garden, redid a good portion of the side garden, and overhauled the rock garden). This year, not so much – between the rainy spring, the late-decision plant sale, and kid sports commitments, there wasn't enough time to tackle any such projects. But I'm happy to report that at long last, I managed to get one in – a modest upgrade to our back yard, connecting the existing "firewood border" and "rose border", along a stretch of split-rail fence where weeds and grass had gotten used to growing tall, out of reach of the lawn mower. The new area covered is rather small, but the project included installing brick edging along both the new section and the borders it linked with, as well as improving the soil with copious amounts of mushroom soil. So I hope it will grow into a bountiful border in a few years – in any case, it already looks much better than the previous state of the area. Oh, and that messy wood assemblage in the background: that's the makeshift fort my kids built earlier this spring. It's gotta go (I already gave the eviction notice) – a new area for a better-planned playhouse/fort has already been scoped out.
