This happens every year. I start the season of planning a garden and try to work with a budget… and then i go to Countryside… the greenhouse…. and the farmers market….. and Horrocks…. and then back to Countryside. By the time i’m done i’ve exceeded by budget X4 but damn it… i still think it might be worth it.
This year i created a plan…. and am slowly working through it.
Major yard renovations include: adding a 4th raised bed, converting the strip of grass into a wildflower patch, adding box planters to the front porch and redoing all of the planting in the side yard.
Here is what i started with…..
We decided on this as a starting point for the planters on the porch…..
and this is where we are now…..
