We have been planning our garden...we ordered our seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, starting small with just the things we know we will eat. We also got a few things that we just think are cool...like these and these.
Tim also mentioned that a few areas where the trees were taken down would make nice spots for informal flower beds...I want to do sunflowers, hollyhocks, daisies...that kind of thing...most of it is in full sun so the flowers need to be hearty. When he cleared in the fall it also opened up the most wonderful space under two old magnificent trees - a red oak and a maple! They are huge and we want to put a seating area under them so that we will have a spot to rest when working on our gardens and if we just want to be out in the shade reading a book. Our deck is in full sun - though I do have a red umbrella for it - it is often hot in the middle of the day...I am thinking that that spot under the trees with a quart sized jar of iced tea will do really well for a hot summer day!
Also this would be a good spot for the parents of Lindsay's riding students to sit and relax while waiting...
Isn't it fun to think and plan for these kinds of things?
What are you all up to?
