The Garden (technically, gardens) is a long-term ongoing project, but I wanted to share it as we go – complete with successes and failures… in both design and execution.
I want food and flowers and to decrease the amount of lawn that needs mowing. So we’ve just started building random raised gardens all over the place.
Hopefully they actually:
1) produce vegetables and fruit, and
2) don’t look like a hot mess of garbage.
I have no uniform vision for the garden spaces… beyond “food” and maybe “pretty”
(You can easily track the timeline of our raised garden beds by their quality and effort)
Wes is a great help* and I recently enlisted exploited his free child labor and had him research all the plants we are planning to grow this year. He did a great job, found all of their friends and enemies,** and I got to play in excel/google sheets figuring out a way to present the data in a way I wished everyone of the sources we used presented the data.
Click here to benefit from Westley’s hard work.***
Spoiler alert, update includes details on a horrific tomato massacre. Ooops.
How’d it all turn out? Well, some of did and some of it didn’t.
The Wassaic Jardin, take two.
Almost May, and pretty much nothing to show for it.
*Sometimes. Especially when I make him do something.
**Some plants really hate each other.
***Disclaimer: Wes did all the research, so if this is all terribly inaccurate it’s completely on him. 🙂
