Hopes For This Year

I'm so happy to be back at TEND for another season!  Thank you for joining us!  When it comes to my garden, I dream big. My list of ideas and wants for my garden is pretty large, but here are a few that I'd like to get checked off this year.
  • I'm hoping to fill in some gaps in my established perennial beds.  I'd love to add some ground covers and additional fillers to tie some of the existing plants together.
  • I dream of a larger, more tidy vegetable garden.  The wooden raised beds are starting to rot, so replacing those may be a larger project later on this year.

  • We have some shaded areas on our property that are pretty bare.  The front yard of our home, which faces west, and the north side of our home both need some help.  I've started purchasing some shade perennials to plant in those areas.
  •  My biggest yearning is to have more hard scape done around our home.  Brick, cobblestone, pea gravel, and cement paths around the garden beds would be so wonderful!  Honestly though, those are some high-priced tickets that I don't think we'll be able to afford this year.

I'll be sure to keep posting some of the progress throughout the season.  That's one of the things I appreciate (and sometimes despise!) about gardening - the work is never complete!

Happy Spring, my friends!
