Note: As of this week, we’re officially moving our posting day to a weekday – Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, depending on when we can get to the computer. It’s been a struggle to even think about blogging on an exhausted Sunday evening of late. Plus, it allows a little more time to reflect on all the goings-on.
This past weekend felt like the weekend we had been waiting for all winter — 75-80 degrees and plenty of sun! It was pretty spectacular, and it allowed us to get tons more done. Unfortunately, the amount we had to get done precluded the taking of photographs (read: we were too busy to remember the camera), so instead this week we’re going to offer up what’s going in the garden this year with all the amazing non-MS Paint skills we can muster! Yep, we put together a new set of garden maps, some of which look remarkably the same from the ones we made last year, at least in terms of layout. In fact, besides the new stone bed, all the other beds, raised or not, remain the same.
We should point out that none of the upcoming layouts are set in stone, and we’ve made at least one change since we made these (noted in the accompanying caption). The more time we spend outside, the more memories are coming back to us in terms of which part of the yard gets the best sun and where we had some of our best harvests. That said, we have moved certain plants around based on how things went in the past. Hopefully they’ll lead to some good things in the coming months. So here’s where things mostly stand for now. (And, with a big planting party planned for this coming weekend, we’ll be back next week with what we hope is our first update in pictures of the year!)
