The Evolving Garden Plan

The Evolving Garden Plan

During summer, I can finally see the garden taking shape and figure out what I want to change--but it's not a good time to transplant. Having a list of things to do as fall arrives will make me more efficient--as opposed to hopping from one task to another.

1. Varmints

The priority has got to be the vegetable garden fence--the rabbits are supposed to live outside the fence. I was pretty proud of myself when I made it, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I have no plans to become a woodworker, or pay one, so I'll try re-stringing the chickenwire, adding a few more fence posts, and filling in the weak spots. I'm not going to kills the chipmunks, so I have to at least be able to keep the rabbits out. Losing the borlotti bean seedlings put me over the edge.


2. The landscape


The persimmon is looking great, but it would be even better if it got more sunlight, so the sea oats and throughwort have been trimmed, and some other things will be moved when the time is right.

The rest of this rear garden bed is bordering on out of control, but it just needs some editing. Some pruning and transplanting--moving the things that are getting lost at the rear of the bed will shape things up, and present less of a perfect rabbit habitat.
