Create the 1) garden space and 2) plant a couple things in the orchard.
Simple, yes. Easy, no.
I still do not know where I want the garden to be. I don't know how big I really want it to be (but I do know I want it big). Makes perfect sense, right!
For the orchard, I know I want a couple (more) apple trees, a pear tree, a raspberry patch, a strawberry patch, some blueberry bushes, an elderberry bush and probably other things too. I also need to get an asparagus bed started as it takes 2-3 years to establish one and I hear they can be very difficult to start.
Then we start in on the herb portion of the garden...
And the idea to have a small greenhouse that is about 10' X 16' in size - I need to see if it is okay to build one of these - not sure if our covenants restrict this type of building. I want one very similar to the one the Elliott Homestead built this past year. It is beautiful and would be a welcome addition to any gardening lovers plans! Can you imagine how early I could start vegetables and how late I could harvest them? Wow. What a wonderful addition if I can make it happen! If I can't do a permanent structure, maybe a smaller portable greenhouse (like this???)
I am really excited to begin this process and planning where everything will go and how we will accomplish it!
