I wasn't sure I was going to plant a garden this year, but I couldn't walk by a garden center without stopping. With so many things that need to be done in my yard, I could hardly justify starting a vegetable garden-- but there I was, looking over all those beautiful heirloom tomatoes-- so I broke down and bought some.
You know what happens next... I walked over to the veggies and lost all control. I just had to have that lemon cucumber, pattipan squash, and the french zucchini. I also threw some nasturtiums and zinnias into the mix. Those little red mushrooms in the lower right corner? Those are fake. Mr. Squirrel (or Mr. Cat--ugh) have decided to dig right there, so I thought the mushrooms might deter them. So far, it seems to be kind of working. Kind of.
Here, you can see just how much work needs to be done-- weeds to be pulled, path to be re-constructed, funky landscape plants to be dug up, new landscape to be designed and installed... the list goes on and on. There is potential though, don't you think? It's just going to be a lot of work.
Oh Haggie, how I wish I could get some manual labor out of you...
