When will my garden grow??? Spring can’t come soon enough – so many plans for the yard and garden this year and nothing in bloom, or even ready to come out.
The biggest transformation will be the area of the old swimming pool. The plan is to make it a combination vegetable and flower garden, even hope to move all the peonies down there for better visibility. It’ll be a two or more year plan – this years budget might get us the plot dug, the design vetted by my master gardener, some seeds planted and the all-important fence.
I want the garden to be visible so whatever deer-abatement fencing goes up has to look pretty as well as be functional. I’m predicting the fence aspect will take up the whole year’s budget.
If any of you have photos of how you fence your gardens, I would love to see and post them here. I am open to any and all suggestions. Our garden in RI doesn’t have any fencing per se, it’s pretty natural in the sense of what grows grows and what gets eaten by critters does. But here with SO many deer, I have no choice but to erect the real-deal fencing.
Have a good weekend. Bundle up!!!
